This introductory chapter begins by reviewing some facts about the world’s media ownership. It then sets out the book’s purpose, which is to analyze the media sector, across countries, across time, and to identify its dynamics, concentration, and ownership trends. This is followed by an overview of the research perspectives, past literature, questions addressed, and conclusions reached by the present study.
