Formatted abstract Insofar as the collection is a conscious attempt to de-Westernise media education, it is both a success and a failure. Cheung concludes (p. 217) that the commonalities fostered by globalisation generally outweigh the specificities of cultural context. At the same time, globalisation is inherently cross-cultural, and Asia’s forceful presence has to be taken into account. The conceptualisation of modern mass media may be Western in origin, but many of the practices of contemporary media are not.
