Stephen provides an interesting account of media convergence and innovative forms of journalism in Asia, using nine case studies from major media companies in this region including the Star Group in Malaysia, the China Daily Online, and the Hindustan Times Group in India. This book is not an account of corporate convergence, nor a discussion of technological convergence but rather a study of innovative ways of doing journalism in the Asia region.
