The second edition of the book «Journalism in Latin America: Journalistic Culture of Ecuador» presents two new chapters, a review, update and graphic improvement of the analysis of the journalistic culture of Ecuador as representative of the Andean region and Latin America.
The book is structured in three parts. In the first of them (chapters I, II and III) the concept of Journalistic Cultures and its implications to the communication and studies in the area is developed and an approach to the concept and the reality of the journalistic culture characteristic of Latin America as a region is carried out. The second part of the work (chapters IV to VII) begins with the location and contextualization of our object of study, the journalistic and communicative reality of Ecuador. This theoretical basis will allow the reader to reach the third part of the book (chapters VIII to XV) with sufficient conceptualization and context management to delve into each of the dimensions of the journalistic culture addressed.
