From Martin Luther King Day to Waitangi Day, this collection surveys the gamut of national holidays. The celebrations analyzed include anniversaries of independence, religious observances, and government holidays. The analysis of each national day revolves around the role that communications play in uniting a country's citizenry. Entries cover individual countries but intertwine to provide a holistic view of the topic of national days. Countries covered: Argentina, Australia, Canada, China, Ethiopia, Ghana, Japan, Kuwait, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Romania, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Turkey, the Ukraine, and the United States
