'Radio in Africa' means radio for everything. In this 319-page book, the co-editors Liz Gunner, Dina Ligaga and Dumisani Moyo provided a thorough description and analysis of the dynamics and hegemonic nature of radio in Africa. Radio stands for oppression, for democracy and enhanced participation of citizens; for incitement and peace; for division and for unity and creation of communities with 'social cohesion'. This book is a valuable collection of essays that highlight the ever-increasing hegemony of radio as 'Africa's medium'. Contributors locate the dynamics of radio culture and its relevance to African societies in different dispensations.
