His Master’s Voice: Mass Communication and Single-Party Politics in Guinea under Sékou Touré
(2005)
  • Mohamed S. Camara, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University
Abstract

Adopting a deconstructionist perspective, the author identifies the political symbiosis of ideology and mass communication as the pillar that sustained the regime of the African nation-states, rather than state repression of political dissent or Sékou Touré’s personal charisma as widely believed. The author argues that ideology was the political blood of the party-state in Guinea and mass communication functioned as its circulatory system.
