Cultural Politics and the Mass Media: Alaska Native Voices
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungIn a series of case studies, Beverly A. James and Patrick J. Daley's Cultural Politics and the Mass Media elegantly reveals how newspapers, radio stations and television programs became strategic sites of Native resistance to the economic and cultural agendas of non-Native settlers. Through these empirically-grounded studies, the authors demonstrate that freedom for indigenous peoples is not only premised on control over their political economy, but also on their capacity to tell their own stories. In so doing, they develop a powerful, historically grounded argument for understanding cultural persistence as a valuable and vital form of self-determination.
Pressestimmen"This book thoroughly documents the ways in which indigenous peoples have used the mass media to resist and persist. It is a work of refreshing criticism that offers multiple insights into continuing Native Alaskan frustrations."
