Social Uses an Radio Practices: The Use of Participatory Radio by Ethnic Minorities in Mexico

This book is about the social value of participatory or community-oriented radio and stresses how the politics of race, ethnicity, class, and gender shape the extent and quality of people's participation in development efforts. It shows, ethnographically, how a number of Mexican ethnic minorities use the communication resources made available to them by a network of radio stations sponsored by the federal government through its lnstituto Nacional lndigenista (INI).


 "[It] can well serve as a model for future studies of community-oriented media."
