In Global Radio: From Shortwave to Streaming, Shaheed Nick Mohammed provides an ambitious survey of about 100 years of radio broadcasting. . . . the variety of examples from around the globe provides a fascinating set of case studies. . . . this book works best as a survey of the topic and introduces the reader to literally dozens of areas which could (and sometimes do) fill entire books on their own. As a historical survey, it is useful for researchers and teachers of media globalization, history of radio or broadcasting, local radio around the globe, or the way radio has been and is used to spread propaganda and hate speech, as well as the more socially positive uses of radio including news, music, culture, and information.
