Neurological disease varies in its presentations and pathology throughout the world. In today’s interconnected world, neurologists need to be aware that patients can come from anywhere in the world with presentations and pathologies that may not be typical of their local context.
This unique textbook deals with the differences in etiology, genetics, age of onset and clinical presentations of neurological disease internationally. This is the first book to take a truly global approach to neurological illness.
Consisting of 22 sections and 173 chapters with contributions from experts in many countries, it serves as an invaluable guide for physicians to expand their knowledge of different neurological disorders around the world. More importantly it is a definitive source of practical information to aid diagnosis and treatment.
With a focus on activism directed towards challenging and changing media content, practices and structures, the book explores the burning question: What is the political significance and potential of democratic media activism in the western world today?
Taking an innovative approach, Robert Hackett and William Carroll pay attention to an emerging social movement that appears at the cutting edge of cultural and political contention, and ground their work in three scholarly traditions that provide interpretive resources for the study of democratic media activism:
political theories of democracy critical media scholarship the sociology of social movements.
Remaking Media examines the democratization of the media and the efforts to transform the machinery of representation. Such an examination will prove invaluable not only to media and communication studies students, but also to students of political science.
