Originally published in 1980 and w back in print, Many Voices, One World came out of hundreds of international studies and proposed reforms for global communication media to ensure a free flow of information. Prepared by the distinguished MacBride Commission - and frequently referred to as the MacBride Report-it criticized corporate control of media flows and suggested ways to make media production accessible in poorer countries. Still widely taught and cited, the MacBride Report is a key work in the history of communication that continues to be relevant today.
