The follow-up to 2003's How Canadians Communicate, this second volume embarks upon a new examination of Canada's current media health and turns its attention to the impact of globalization on Canadian communication, culture, and identity.

This new collection of essays includes contributions from experts from a wide range of specialties in the areas of communication and technology. Some, as the editors point out, are optimistic about the future of Canadian media, while others are pessimistic. All, however, recognize the profound impact of rapidly changing technologies and the new globalized world on Canadian culture. The contributors highlight the new tools such as blogs, Blackberries, and peer-to-peer networks that are continuously changing how Canadians communicate. And, they explore the various ways in which Canada is adapting to the new climate of globalization, suggesting new and innovative paths to further define and strengthen our uniquely Canadian cultural identity.
