This volume, the first in a three-book series titled Communication Processes, is devoted to understanding the politics in, and of, communication. It explores both the ground on which processes of communication unfold and the political configurations implied in communication processes. This two-pronged approach questions the preoccupation in Indian scholarship with the `deployment` of communication technology, and the `impact` of mass media, and suggests a repositioning of `communication` as an interdisciplinary domain of enquiry. Like in the ensuing volumes, the editors of this book juxtapose a pluralist universe of conceptual articulations, theoretical constructs and empirical validations. In addressing these questions, the contributors steer through, on the one hand, the modernization-inspired tradition of communication research in India—predominated by impact and reception studies—and, on the other, global trends that shaped the glut of fashionable writings—coincidental with and spurred by transnational television and the internet—during the 1990s. Printed Pages: 476.
