"This paper examines the struggles of two developing nations as they attempt to define the role of the media in their national development. After sketching aspects of the debate on the subject, the paper focusses on Jamaica and Guyana, looks at their positions in light of some traditional mass communication models, and proposes 'participatory' and 'development' models of communication to express the Jamaican and Guyanese positions."
