Communication and Latin America Society
Trends in Critical Research, 1960-1985
Rita Atwood and Emile G. McAnany

This enlightening work represents the first comprehensive overview of the major issues in the communication scholarship in Latin America. In addition to a comparison of critical communication research in Latin America, the United States, and Western Europe, the authors delineate within a historical context the seminal ideals that guide Latin American critical communication research. The book also includes contributions by Latin American communication scholars who provide examples of theoretical and methodological orientations to the field. Atwood and McAnany’s thorough and informative compilation will engage scholars and students of communication theory and Latin American studies.
