Biography Artist:
Author J. Strömbäck: Frank Esser is Professor of International and Comparative Media Research at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. After studies in Mainz and London, he taught at the Universities of Oklahoma, Missouri and Texas-Austin. His research focuses on cross-national studies of news journalism and political communication. His co-edited books include the Handbook of Comparative Communication Research (2012) and Democracy in the Age of Globalization and Mediatization (2013).

Rethinking democracy is imperative in the new framework of loosely bounded and competing territories, growingly culturally heterogeneous populations, mediatised and privatised context of political persuasion, and multiple and nationally-displaced decision-making processes. This book does so with great insight and comprehensiveness.

-Professor Stefano Bartolini, Director of the Robert Schumann Center for Advanced Studies, European University Institute, Florence Italy.

"Democracy in the Age of Globalization and Meditization" takes a fresh look on democracy. Combining insights from Comparative Politics, International Relations and Political Theory, this book convincingly identifies the major challenges and offers important insights for responding to them. It is a must for those interested in the future of democracy.

- Michael Zürn, Director at WZB (Social Science Research Center Berlin) and Professor of International Relations, Free University Berlin, Germany.
