"A collection of 26 papers, about two-thirds of which are by West Africans, designed to put the development of mass communication into a cultural and historical overview of the development of the region, which includes Nigeria, Liberia, Ghana, the Ivory Coast and Senegal. Among the subjects are ownership and control, the New World Information and Communication Order, cultural programs and language use in the media, professionalism, information diffusion, media use, and the trend of mass communication research. Among the essays is an extensive bibliographic essay containing several hundred items. Each article contains references." (Eleanor Blum, Frances G. Wilhoit: Mass media bibliography. 3rd ed.
