Media, Ethnicity, and Electoral Conflicts in Kenya (Hardcover)
Media, Ethnicity, and Electoral Conflicts in Kenya examines the interplay between the media, ethnicity, and electoral conflicts in Kenya. The author argues that politicians in Kenya and other deeply divided societies in Africa use mainstream and digital media to weaponize ethnicity as they invoke issues of belonging, inclusion, and exclusion.
