African Media and Democratization, by Yusuf Kalyango, Jr.

This book from Peter Lang Publishing addresses the egregiously  understudied topic of the role of the media in    democratic transitions in Eastern and Southern Africa.  As crucial support in the publishing process, Darcy provided background research, analysis of public opinion data, first drafts of several chapters, substantive editing, proofreading, and layout for the book.

What the client said“I also extend my deepest thanks to one of my research assistants at OU [Ohio University], Darcy Higgins, who spent endless hours in the library…Darcy’s work ethic and charisma will make her an invaluable global citizen.” — Dr. Kalyango, pp.xvi, African Media and Democratization.
