About the Anthology "Media and Transformation in Germany and Indonesia: Asymmetrical Comparisons and Perspectives.
Media and transformation in Germany and Indonesia is a thought-provoking and analytically helpful book. It corrects some established assumptions and proposes directions of asymmetrical comparisons for further research. Its comparisons, made through a collection of writings with the aim of bridging a gap between theory and practice, succesfully remind us that we live in asymmetrical constructions in multiple dimnesions, and that nothing is really an apple or an orange - or a durian.
