Political scientists by and large ignore cultural industries and technologies whereas they are prominent in other disciplines. This book provides insights from local, societal, national, and international levels in understanding cultural industries, technologies, and policies and integrates these perspectives into the study of political science.
J.P. Singh is Associate Professor in Communication, Culture and Technology at Georgetown University, USA. His research interests are international trade and negotiations, international development, qualitative reasearch methods and international cultural policies.
