Harvey Jassem, Professor Emeritus in the School of Communication, College of Arts and Sciences, recently published a new book entitled Urban Communication Regulation: Communication Freedoms and Limits (Peter Lang, 2017) with Susan Drucker, co-editor. The book focuses on urban communication and human interaction as regulated by municipal governments. Thirteen scholars—whose backgrounds range from community organizing, to law, telecommunication, architecture, city planning, art, policy studies, and urban communication—examine public communication venues and opportunities, as each is impacted by municipal regulation. Given the centrality and growth in cities worldwide, protecting and enhancing communication freedoms in urban areas, while taking into account the chaos that crowded cities face, is essential and was the motivation for this book.
The book is available on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Urban-Communication-Regulations-Freedoms-Century/dp/1433146312/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1516985698&sr=1-1&keywords=urban+communication+regulation
