Politics, Communication, and Culture

Edited by:


April 1997 | 304 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This volume offers a variety of perspectives on politics and culture. The authors are united in their assumption of, and inquiry into, the pre-existing cultural values and practices that are brought to and reflected in activities of the state, as well as in organized activities against the state. The authors also address the intercultural nature of such political activism.

Part One describes ways of configuring politics, culture and communication. Part Two presents case studies that explore the cultural grounds of political activism. The final section introduces a new feature to the Annual: a forum in which scholars question, challenge and explore a topic related to the volume's theme. In this year's forum, four scholars examine politics in intercultural training programmes.
