Development communication is the process of intervening in a systematic or strategic manner with either media (print, radio, telephony, video, and the Internet) or education (training, literacy, schooling) in order to promote positive social change. InDevelopment Communication top media scholars explore the details of communication in areas where modernization has failed to deliver change. This core text gives a complete introduction to the history of development communication, major approaches and theories, the role of NGOs and foundations, feminism digital–divide, and the paradigm shift currently underway. The reframing stresses the power of grass–roots movements and bottom–up approaches that challenge the status quo and top–down focus of previous approaches.

"I think that this book offers an astute look at how the field of development communication has changed over time and why it has so much potential as a tool in development. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found it very helpful in developing my understanding of the past, present, and future of the field of development communication." (Canadian Journal of Communication, 2011)

"It fills the need for a readable approach to decades of development history, and gives a range of issues that any student of development communication should know, with thoughtful contexts and case studies designed to stimulate discussion." (European Journal of Communication, July 2010)
