  • Book Review: Perlman, Janice (2010) Favela. Four Decades of Living on the Edge in Rio de Janeiro, New York: Oxford University Press. ISBN – 978-0-19-536836-9

    Medrado, Andrea (2011)
    Between 1968 and 1969, Janice Perlman, a young American researcher, lived in the favelas of Brazil’s “marvellous” city of Rio de Janeiro. Her research produced the book The Myth of Marginality: Urban Poverty and Politics in Rio de Janeiro, published in 1976. Fitting within a trend of scholarly thought that emerged in the mid-1960s, from writers such as Anibal Quijano, Manuel Castells, Florestan Fernandes and William Mangin, the book radically challenged the negative views of the urban poor th...

    Hear our plea: Voices of early free Methodist women in denominational print culture

    Mesaros-Winckles, Christy (2011)
    In the late nineteenth century a gender battle was brewing in the Free Methodist Church. Since the denomination’s founding in 1860, women had pursued ordination. With the support of the denomination’s founder, Benjamin Titus Roberts, women began to wage a fierce editorial campaign in the pages of the denominational weekly magazine, The Free Methodist and the quadrennial special publication General Conference Dailies. The articles written by women and in defense of women’s roles in the denomin...

    Book Review: Hafez, Kai (editor) Arab Media – Power and Weakness, 2008, New York: Continuum International, ISBN 978-0826428363

    Haugbolle, Sune (2009)
    Arab Media – Power and Weakness provides an assessment of the emergent field of Arab media studies. The 13 articles of the volume, most written by veterans in the field, discuss issues related to the effects, audiences, contexts, ethics, economy, law and culture of Arab media. The book’s introduction by editor Kai Hafez ties this plethora of material together in an ambitious attempt to outline current research on the links between Arab politics, society and media, and to point to some of the ...

    Book Review: David Edwards and David Cromwell – Media Lens Newspeak in the 21st Century Pluto Press, London, 2009, ISBN: 978-0-7453-2893-5

    Hallett, Lawrie (2009)
    To start with an analogy, for many, reading this book will be like the experience of eating Marmite! The way in which the subject matter is dealt with will be loved by some and hated by others, according to personal taste, politics and ideology. Although dealing with contentious issues of recent history, this book immediately reminded me of some of the early publications from the Glasgow University Media Group, such as 'Bad News', which I first read when completing a radio journalism course b...
