    Plagiarism at its best

    All pages of this book are copy + paste with little or no modification from internet sources (mainly wiki).
    check it out for yourself before buying.
    for example:
    page 449-450 in this book mentions about types and functions of mass media.
    This is taken verbatim from the below link
    encyclopedia(dot)com/topic/Mass_media.aspx, copyright of The Gale Group Inc, is copied verbatim in the book: (Eg: page 449-450) 'Facets of Indian Culture', edited by Kalpana Rajaram
