Communication for Social Change Anthology

Published by Communication for Social Change Consortium, this groundbreaking book brings together a broad variety of views and features more than 150 key thinkers throughout the world.

After the Second World War, the strategic role of communication in development and social change became clear: The liberation movements of many former colonies, the growing number of non-governmental organisations and the rapid spread of mass media all demonstrated that the communication process is essential to advancing social change, combating poverty and giving people the power to improve their own lives.

Today, there is an urgent need to know: “Which ideas contributed to what we now understand communication for social change to be? Who were the communication experts who helped develop a new communication approach? What are the emerging issues and trends shaping communication for social change?”
Edited by leaders in the field, the Communication for Social Change Anthology contains the most important texts in this field.

The CFSC Consortium offers numerous resources on Communication for Social Change and are located in South Orange, New Jersey. Visit their website.
