This special issue of Interactions: Studies in Communication & Culture sought to compile an empirically based understanding of the role of media in countries in transition as it relates to individuals’ political attitudes, values and behaviour. While there is a growing corpus of work across several disciplines such as political science, mass and political communication, anthropology and sociology on political socialization, it has not coalesced into an understanding – much less a theoretical body of knowledge – of individual political socialization via traditional and new media in periods of national change.
