Summary
  • "In the face of expanding global media, Europe's linguistic minorities have started resisting the homogenizing forces of television. Escaping the Global Village documents and analyzes various campaigns by indigenous minority language advocates throughout Europe for alternative-language television services. Niamh Hourigan uses social movement theory as the basic framework for her comparison of indigenous minority language protest groups such as the Welsh, Basques, Scot Gaelic, Catalan and Irish. She also offers penetrating analyses of the television services that were the result of many of these protests, and insightful accounts of the campaigns themselves
  • Escaping the Global Village not only documents a fascinating modern form of social protest, but situates it in terms of broader theories of social change, particularly globalization."--Jacket
