I recently had the pleasure of reading the following two wonderful books and reviewing them for CJC and JCG (click on the journal titles below to see the texts):
The Production of Modernization: Daniel Lerner, Mass Media, and the Passing of Traditional Society. By Hemant Shah. Philadelphia, PA: Temple University Press, 2011. Canadian Journal of Communication (2014). Vol. 39, Issue 2, pp. 297-299
The Politics of the Encounter: Urban Theory and Protest Under Planetary Urbanization. By Andy Merrifield. Athens: University of Georgia Press, 2013. Journal of Cultural Geography (2014). Vol, 31, Issue 02, pp. 249-250
I’ll be back soon with a post on my trip to Europe.
