Journalism Education in Countries with Limited Media Freedom. Josephi Beate (ed.) (2010). New York: Peter Lang. pp. 280.
Journalism education programs have enjoyed a dramatic expansion globally since the 1990s. As of 2007, there were 1,859 journalism education institutions across the world, according to the World Journalism Education Census (Center for International Media Assistance, http://www.ellenhume.com/articles/education.pdf). Against this background, the edited volume Journalism Education in Countries with Limited Media Freedom offers a better understanding of the meanings and implications of the growth of journalism education in non-Western societies. It stands out among numerous books on journalism education by taking a comparative perspective, not in conflict with a global view, and focuses on the development and current status of journalism education in transitional societies over the past few decades.
