This valuable resource offers a wealth of practical and conceptual guidance to advocates, scholars, and communities engaged in on-going struggles for social justice around the world. It explains in accessible language and painstaking detail how to deploy and to understand the tools of media and communication in advancing the goals of social, cultural, and political change. In a world of growing grassroots activism powered by today’s accessible communications technology, this handbook synthesizes the diversity of strategies and academic perspectives that are often regarded as niche interests, covering everything from public health issues to social entrepreneurship. The comprehensive approach adopted in this volume brings together a range of themes in order to transcend misleading binaries separated by artificial political boundaries between developed and developing, modern and traditional social categorizations, and mediated and interpersonal communication. Integrating material from across the field, the handbook covers participatory, health and community communication strategies, as well as broader topics such as communication policy and technology, gender and communication, political communication, and political economy.
“This handbook is a unique tool to profoundly understand the strategic use of communication for social justice. It closes critical gaps and articulates previous traditions. The editors have brought together a truly impressive collection of original texts and have opened new directions for the field.” – Helena Sousa, University of Minho “A weakness of literature on development communication is its division into streams with separate, partly artificial niches. This book brings the approaches together. It not only gives an overview of the field but it creates an integrated conceptual framework toward understanding communication, media, development, participation and social change.” – Ullamaija Kivikuru, Helsinki University “Professor Wilkins, Tufte and Obregon’s edited handbook provides a comprehensive and critical assessment of the many roles that communication – both theory and practice- has played in development and social change over the past 60 years. It will be an invaluable resource for development communication specialists and scholars, and for anyone committed to advancing the rights and opportunities of historically neglected or oppressed communities.” – John Mayo, Florida State University
