TOULOUSE, France - Feb. 21, 2022 - PRLog -- Cambridge Scholars just published a collection of essays that celebrate trends in creative expression and critically engage with recent developments of media censorship. "As a professor of media studies in the US, I have long wanted a book like this one," says Donna Halper, Lesley University, USA. "We live in a globalized media landscape, where trends in one country affect trends in another; it is increasingly important for students to understand the impact, the media have worldwide. In this new book, the authors have their finger on the pulse of major issues in media."

As noted by Bruce Mutsvairo, Associate Professor/Global Media Studies at Utrecht University, Netherlands: "From Charlie Hebdo to Black Lives Matter, citizen journalism to Aljazeera, gangsta rap to soap operas, this book accurately carries stimulating and intellectually-engaging perspectives that capture the true face of international media and culture studies in an age of continuous disruption. Martin A.M. Gansinger and Ayman Kole deserve more than just praises for giving us this must-read book that anyone interested in contemporary mediacentric developments around the globe, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa will find richly rewarding."

The book places the spotlight on pressing issues, such as the ongoing enforcement of information control in the name of public health or the local politics and practices that hinder the process of democratization in authoritarian systems. "This compilation of essays addresses the ethical and academic implications of many global trends, using up-to-date examples," states Dr Jane L. Chapman, Professor of Communications, Lincoln University, UK. "These current discussions, in my view, will be welcomed worldwide."
