ALI Christopher

Media Localism. The Policies of Place

University of Illinois Press, 2017, 272 p., $25.

We live in a boosterish era that exhorts us to play local and buy local. But what does it mean to support local media ? How should we define local media in the first place ? Christopher Ali delves into our ideas about localism and their far-reaching repercussions for the discourse of federal media policy and regulation. His critique focuses on the new interest in localism among regulators in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. As he shows, the many different and often contradictory meanings of localism complicate efforts to study local voices. At the same time, market factors and regulators’ unwillingness to critically examine local media blunt challenges to the status quo. Ali argues that reconciling the places where we live with the spaces we inhabit will point regulators toward effective policies that strengthens local media. That new approach will again elevate local media to its rightful place as a vital part of the public good. "Media’s woeful lack of localism is matched by lack of definition about what the term really means. Ali’s brilliant dissection of localism in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada provides a foundation for developing strategies to restore our vanished local media."—Michael Copps, former Commissioner of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission
