Product Overview

Less than a decade after the advent of democracy in South Africa, tabloidnewspapers have taken the country by storm. One of these papers -- the Daily Sun --is now the largest in the country, but it has generated controversy for itsperceived lack of respect for privacy, brazen sexual content, and unrestrainedtruth-stretching. Herman Wasserman examines the success of tabloid journalism inSouth Africa at a time when global print media are in decline. He considers thesocial significance of the tabloids and how they play a role in integrating readersand their daily struggles with the political and social sphere of the new democracy.Wasserman shows how these papers have found an important niche in popular and civicculture largely ignored by the mainstream media and formal politicalchannels.
