This book tells the rich and often heroic story of,the press in Liberia. Early newspapers were,infused with a broad race consciousness which gave,way to a specific nationalism at the turn of the,last century. Initially, newspapers featured,biting social commentary and enjoyed wide latitude,to criticise officials, but restrictions were,soon applied. Exploring the uses and abuses of,power, the author demonstrates that the experience,of Liberia provides a sobering corrective to the,current euphoria regarding the effects of,globalisation.
