News in Distress
News in Distress: The Southeast Asia Media in a Time of Crisis looks at the problems facing the Southeast Asian media in an era of economic contagion, examining issues such as State control, the tyranny of anarchic media markets, and the challenges and opportunities brought about by democratization, globalization and market deregulation on the region's mass media.
This collection of papers were first presented at the seminar-workshop Improving the Flow of Information in a Time of Crisis: The Challenge to the Southeast Asian Media held at the Subic Freeport, Philippines in October 1998. Contributors include Sheila S. Coronel, Walden Bello, Melinda de Jesus, Lukas Luwarso, Kunda Dixit, Peter Eng, Philip Bowring, Khin Maung Win, Wang Lay Kim, and Tedjabayu Basuki.
