Media Policy and Globalization

This book takes a fresh look at media and communications policy and provides a comprehensive account of issues that are central to the study of the field. It moves beyond the "specifics" of regulation, by examining policy areas that have proved to be of common concern for societies across different socioeconomic realities.

The study of place names, 'toponymics', unlocks the myriad interlocking stories that are encoded in every street and landmark.

Floating on a Malayan Breeze: Travels in Malaysia and Singapore

What happens after a country splits apart? Forty-five years ago Singapore separated from Malaysia. Since then, the two countries have developed along their own paths. Malaysia has given preference to the majority Malay Muslims-the bumiputera, or sons of the soil. Singapore, meanwhile, has tried to build a meritocracy-ostensibly colour-blind, yet more encouraging perhaps to some Singaporeans than to others. How have these policies affected ordinary people? How do these two divergent nations now see each other and the world around them? Seeking answers to these questions, two Singaporeans set off to cycle around Peninsular Malaysia, armed with a tent, two pairs of clothes and a daily budget of three US dollars each. They spent 30 days on the road, cycling through every Malaysian state, and chatting with hundreds of Malaysians. Not satisfied, they then went on to interview many more people in Malaysia and Singapore. What they found are two countries that have developed economically but are still struggling to find their souls.

Smart Growth: From Sprawl to Sustainability

Smart Growth explains what the UK must do to improve the quality of life in an overcrowded land. Urban sprawl is unsustainable in an age of climate change and peak oil.
