An eloquent and scholarly history … bangs another nail into the coffin of modernization theory

Power and Press Freedom in Liberia is an eloquent and scholarly history of the press in Africa’s oldest republic. It is an important book not only for students of African history, but also of communications studies. It bangs another nail into the coffin of modernisation theory, and punctures complacent theorising about the blessings of western market development.
