Western media ‘elite’models challenged by PNG research

  • Patrick Craddock


Reviewed book edited by Evangelia Papoutsaki, Michael McManus and Patrick Matbob Publication date: October, 2011

More than 20 authors have been included in Communication, Culture and Society in Papua New Guinea: Yu Tok Wanem? This should surely be the book of the month on media in the Pacific. The editors have divided the book into four themes focusing on: mainstream media issues; social issues; information gaps and development issues, and the search for solutions. A glance at the mini-profiles of the authors show that many come from a range of PNG backgrounds, including the Highlands, Bougainville, New Ireland, Manus and East New Britain. Also represented in the book are well-known media academics from New Zealand and Australia.
