Arjun Appadurai, New York University
'Shani Orgad has written a readable, theoretically sophisticated book about media representation in a global world. By showing the complexity and ambiguity of texts and interpretation, she deftly avoids the twin problems of absolute domination and complete resistance that have characterized the literature. Based on a smart selection of cases, she carefully dissects the struggles over imagining a global world. Highly recommended to anyone interested in state-of-the-art analysis about media resources used to envision what "global" means.'
Silvio Waisbord, George Washington University
"This book will be of interest in a number of ways to those studying media in a global context."
Internal Journal of Communication
'We live in a global and media age, a time when how we imagine the world is and could yet be, can, potentially and actually, enter into the course and conduct of that same world. Shani Orgad illuminates and intelligently reflects on this most crucial and consequential interplay between media representation and global imagination. A book for our times.'
Simon Cottle, Cardiff University
"Although this book will appeal directly to international media specialists, scholars broadly interested in globalization could use it in the classroom and their research."
