Paperback – April 3, 2023

We are delighted about the affordable 2023 paperback edition of this global television book. It is now more ideal for university course adoption and faculty acquisition.

This book discusses the role of television drama series on a global scale, analyzing dramas across the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa, for example. Contributors consider the role of television dramas as economically valuable cultural products and with their depictions of gender roles, sexualities, race, cultural values, political systems, and religious beliefs as they analyze how these programs allow us to indulge our innate desire to share human narratives in a way that binds us together and encourages audiences to persevere as a community on a global scale.
