Drawing on a wide range of social and psychological theories, Castells presents original research on political processes and social movements. He applies this analysis to numerous recent events - the misinformation of the American public on the Iraq War,the global environmental movement to preventclimate change, the control of information in China and Russia, Barak Obama's internet-based presidential campaigns, and (in this new edition) responses to recent political and economic crises such as the Arab Spring and the Occupy movement. On the basis of these case studies he proposes a newtheory of power in the information age based on the management of communication networks.

The communication potential of contemporary mass media is immense. It can communicate with us about the entire world and it can stimulate and inspire us with entertainment. The realisation of this potential has been frustrated by interrelated networks of people who have controlled major media over the last century. Those interests see media as a means to control and manipulate people rather than as a means to inform and inspire people. The approach in this book moves beyond the abstractions and systems approaches often used in criticisms of media to an analysis focused on the concrete groups that dominate media. These groups do constitute a system, but one that must be understood in its terms of all of its historical features -- economic, political, and social.

The author explores the strategic web of communication that influences company policy in an open market setting. By focusing on an actual situation within an industrial company that forces interpretation, negotiation, and action among employees, communication within the company is analyzed. The book examines the concept of power in a corporate organization, its distribution and how - often unobtrusively - it is expressed and communicated. Special attention is given to techniques used in exercising power, organizational symbolism, organizational hierarchies, and lines of communication. Methodological refinement in the use of a multiple perspective approach is achieved by drawing on culture theory, Foucault's theory of power, and Habermas' theory of communicative action.

This book re-visits how we think about communication and power in the global era. It takes stock of the last fifty years of scholarship, maps key patterns and concepts and sets an agenda for theory and research. The book addresses such questions as: How are national and cultural identities re-fashioned and expressed in the global era? How can we best understand the emergence of multiple and sometimes antagonistic modernities worldwide? How are political struggles fought and communicated on the local-national-global nexus? How do we integrate emerging media environments in global communication studies? Bringing together essays from a range of internationally renowned scholars, this book will be useful to undergraduate and postgraduate students on Media and Communication Studies courses, particularly those studying globalisation and global media.

Communication is central to how we understand international affairs. Political leaders, diplomats, and citizens recognize that communication shapes global politics. This has only been amplified in a new media environment characterized by Internet access to information, social media, and the transformation of who can communicate and how. Soft power, public diplomacy 2.0, network power – scholars and policymakers are concerned with understanding what is happening. This book is the first to develop a systematic framework to understand how political actors seek to shape order through narrative projection in this new environment. To explain the changing world order – the rise of the BRICS, the dilemmas of climate change, poverty and terrorism, the intractability of conflict – the authors explore how actors form and project narratives and how third parties interpret and interact with these narratives. The concept of strategic narrative draws together the most salient of international relations concepts, including the links between power and ideas; international and domestic; and state and non-state actors. The book is anchored around four themes: order, actors, uncertainty, and contestation. Through these, Strategic Narratives shows both the possibilities and the limits of communication and power, and makes an important contribution to theorizing and studying empirically contemporary international relations.

In the belief that power is something that is negotiated by participants in the instructional process and with the goal of understanding how communication and power interact, this book looks at power and instruction in many different ways. Drawing from the lessons of the social sciences generally, it examines research that has been conducted by instructional communication specialists, looks at newer approaches to power, presents a status report on what is now known, and points to the divergent directions that offer opportunities for future scholarship.
