"Any book which develops a historical perspective in the all-too-often ahistorical field of media studies is a welcome addition to its literature, and this is certainly the case with this edited collection. [...] In the face of an uncertain future, the book acts as a timely taking-of-stock of the World Service's many achievements and points of merit" European Journal of Communication
