This Second Edition of Communication for Development in the Third World builds on the framework provided by the earlier edition. However, this edition is organized conceptually where the first edition was organized historically.
It is updated to include the literature on development and communications from the 1990s and integrate it with the theory and practice of development communication.

Praise for the First Edition:

`The book's worthiness as an excellent decade-by-decade analysis of the theory and practice of DC by a Third World scholar who has not only learnt about problems of development from books but has experienced them. No school is better than the school of life. The book is an excellent study' - Media Development
