This collection examines the theoretical, analytical and political implications of global developments involving telecommunications and related technologies. The book's contributors - from fields such as economics, political science and communication studies - relate research on the political economy of communication with the work of international political economy scholars. The book stimulates cross-disciplinary debates among readers in these and other areas in order to, first, critically evaluate recent global developments involving communications and, second, to encourage the development of a more holistic and inclusive approach to these and related issues.

This book examines the effect of post-Soviet transitions on current problem solving trends with regards to world capitalism. The fall of Soviet communism left liberal capitalism as the dominant blueprint from which to construct economic development policies. Using Central Europe as an example it is shown that the application of the Western liberal-capitalist model has not been without its difficulties. This book endeavours to place the changes to the global political economy, since 1989, in a theoretical and historical context.
