about this item

The commonplace torturing, killing, and jailing of "dissident journalist" by anti-people African regimes has compelled Mentan to compose a spirited defence of press freedom on the continent as the only shield against social disequilibrium. A scholar of political science as well as of journalism and communication, he discusses principles of journalism, African political systems, propaganda and censorship, the media context, why freedom of the press matters, patterns of repression, whose failures, and press censorship and social equilibrium.
