Synopsis: Contemporary media and communications industries are examined in their social, political, economic and organisational contexts. Examples from Australia, Singapore and Malaysia will be analysed in some detail. Global and local "forces" such as technological convergence, deregulation, globalisation and commercialisation are examined as historical ideas, and governments' policy responses to them charted.
