Overview

This is the first book in more than a decade to provide a comprehensive look at broadcasting throughout the world. It covers every continent, region and almost every country in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceana. Within each geographical area and nation Global Broadcasting Systems presents the history, key issues, trends and status of key broadcasting issues.


Global Broadcasting Systems discusses how new technology and political, social, and economic factors are creating the global media village. It shows how increasing privatisation has changed patterns of control and access, especially by the rapidly
growing media giants. It compares the problems and potentials of have and have-not countries, and also includes schedules, charts, photos and several special essays on selected countries.
