This month, Routledge releases The Routledge Companion to Media and Human Rights, edited by Howard Tumber and Silvio Waisbord. The press describes the book as bringing together "two distinct ways of thinking about human rights and media, including scholarship that examines media as a human right alongside that which looks at media coverage of human rights issues."
