Overview

Maxwell (media studies, Queens College, City U. of New York) provides a new generation of media and communications students with a synthesis of the work of critical communications studies pioneer, Herbert Schiller (1919-2000). Much of the text draws from autobiographical accounts and memoirs available in only a handful of works, as well as Maxwell's conversations and correspondence with Schiller over 25 years. Following a short introduction and biographical essay, subsequent chapters examine Schiller's work chronologically in relation to changes in his life and the intellectual tasks central to each period.
