A.A. Olorunnisola, ed. 2009. Media and communications industries in Nigeria: impacts of neoliberal reforms between 1999 and 2007. Lewiston: The Edwin Mellen Press. 278 pp. The eight-chapter book is a bold attempt at making a pioneering and pragmatic assessment of the operations of media and communications industries in Nigeria, within the complex context of neoliberal policy agenda--a pro-entrepreneurial economic philosophy that encourages free-market economics. Specifically, the eight-year period from 1999 to 2007, which witnessed a progressive implementation of neoliberal reforms in Nigeria, and the implications of these reforms for the media and communications industries within the democratic environment, form the focus of the contributing authors.
