'Martin Scott has written an excellent book which will go straight to the top of student reading lists. It is lucid, readable and clear, parsing complex debates and voluminous literatures with an easy mastery. It is also thoroughly thought-provoking. You could not ask for a better introduction to this topic.' Daniel Brockington, University of Manchester 'This book is innovative, relevant and very useful for students wishing to understand the complex relations between media and development. Martin Scott delivers accessible narratives, interesting insights and nuanced arguments. But not least, he writes well. A good communicator offering an important contribution to the field!' Thomas Tufte, Roskilde University 'Martin Scott offers a compelling and original constructive critique of media development, artfully integrating critical attention to communication for development with concerns with communication about development. This work offers a valuable contribution to communication, humanitarian, and development work.' Karin Wilkins, University of Texas at Austin 'Insightful and eloquent, Martin Scott's book comes a long way in addressing the notoriously slippery question of how exactly media matter in development. By clearing conceptual ground, synthesising debates and formulating new challenges, the book also powerfully demonstrates just how valuable interdisciplinary scholarship can be.' Lilie Chouliaraki, London School of Economics and Social Science
