Synopsis

Telecommunications, Mass Media, and Democracy The Battle for the Control of US Broadcasting, 1928-1935 by Robert W. McChesney

This book examines a critical point in US broadcasting in the late 1920s and early 1930s - the only period in which a strong opposition emerged to network-dominated, advertising-supported media such as radio. Although the opposition failed to secure airwaves for non-profit broadcasters, its critique of the formation and structure of early broadcasting anticipated much of today's most compelling media criticism.
