To describe this book as a ‘Handbook’ is an understatement. It is a comprehensive survey and outline of the media throughout 25 countries of Asia, from Pakistan in the West to Mongolia in the Northeast and the Philippines in the Southeast. Not only are the major nations and economies covered but countries such as Maldives and Macau are included.
