Abstract:

This collection covers the major trends of the media environment of the post-Communist world and their recent development, with special focus on Russia and the post-Soviet space. The term ?media environment? covers not just traditional print and electronic media, but new media as well, and ranges from the political to entertainment and various artistic spheres. 0What role do market forces play in the process of media democratization, and how do state structures regulate, suppress, or use capitalism toward their own gain? What degree of informational pluralism has been achieved in the newly independent republics? What are the prospects for transparency and the participation of civil society in Russian and Eurasian media? To what degree do trends in post-Communist media reflect global trends? Is there a worldwide convergence with regard to both media formats and political messaging? 0Western observers usually pay their keenest attention to the role of media in Russia and Eurasia during national elections. While this is a valid focus, the present volume aims at understanding the deeper overall ?media philosophies? that characterize post-Soviet media systems and environments, and the type of identity formation that they are promoting.
