19 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 1,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are current models of media reception and audience ethnography appropriate to the contemporary media environment? Collectively the contributors to this volume argue that they are not. Together they put the case for a new approach, a new agenda, to account for the role of the media in everyday life. Only this new agenda can, they suggest, explain our ubiquitous, constantly reflexive, participation in modern media culture."--Jacket

The synchronization of national policies : ethnography of the global tribe of moderns by Pertti Alasuutari( Book )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Synchronization of National Policies shows how it is possible that there is remarkable uniformity in the policies that the nation-states adopt, although there is no world government. Mainstream research attributes such global governance to the influence of leading countries, to functional requirements created by capitalism and technological development, or to international organizations. This book argues that to understand how national policies are synchronized we need to realize that the global population forms a single global tribe of moderns, divided into some 200 clans called nations. While previous research on the world culture of moderns has focused on the diffusion of ideas, this book concentrates on the active role of local actors, who introduce global models and domesticate them to nation-states. In national policymaking, actors justify new policies by international comparisons, by the successes and failures of models adopted in other countries, and by building and appealing to the authority of international organizations. Consequently, national policies are synchronized with each other. Yet, because of the way such domestication of global trends takes place, citizens retain and reproduce the understanding that they follow a sovereign national trajectory. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of sociology, world culture theory, globalization, international relations, and political science.--
National policy-making : domestication of global trends by Pertti Alasuutari( )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Notions of social change are often divided into local versus international. But what actually happens at the national level--where policies are ultimately made and implemented--when policymaking is interdependent worldwide? How do policymakers take into account the prior choices of other countries? Far more research is needed on the process of interdependent decision-making in the world polity. National Policy-Making: Domestication of Global Trends offers a unique set of hybrid cases which straddle these disciplinary and conceptual divides. The volume brings together well-researched case studies of policy-making from across the world, which speak to practical issues but also challenge current theories of global influence in local policies. Distancing itself from approaches which conceive narrowly of policy transfer as a 'one-way street' from powerful nations to weaker ones, this book argues instead for an understanding of national decision-making processes that emphasise cross-national comparisons and domestic field battles around the introduction of worldwide models. The case studies in this collection show how national policies appear to be synchronised globally, yet are developed with distinct 'national' flavours. Presenting new theoretical ideas and empirical cases, this book is aimed globally at scholars of political science, international relations, comparative public policy, and sociology"--
