This work challenges the general perception that mass media fails to communicate scientific studies and research to the public. Through detailed case studies of journalistic presentation of science news in regional newspapers in Kerala, the book demonstrates that mass media has a rather complex relationship with science in contemporary democracies. The social dynamics of their mutual resonance and its impact on public engagement with science is the key emphasis of the book.
