At a time when sustainability is on everyone's lips, this volume is one of the first to offer an overview of sustainability and communication issues-including community mobilization, information technologies, gender and social norms, mass media, interpersonal communication, and integrated communication approaches-from a development and social change perspective. Drawing on contemporary theories of communication as well as real-world examples from development projects around the world, the contributors showcase the increasing richness and versatility of communication research and practice. Together, they make a case for adopting a more comprehensive perspective on communication in the areas of development and social change.
