Field studies in eight of India's states underpin this discussion of the changing styles and influences of Hindi newspapers in central India. The background of the increase in newspaper circulation in rural areas in the 1990s is discussed. Sometimes unexpected impacts of change in style, ownership and content are found, and the political/public impact of the increasingly localised 7 focus is also explored. With black-and-white illustrations, bibliography, and index.
