Overview

Messages is a search for the origins of media forms, from print and stage through photography to film and broadcasting. With a wealth of illuminating anecdotes and quotations, Brian Winston dearly and forcefully argues, in accessible jargon-free language, the case for the media's central importance as an essential engine underpinning all human rights and driving the Western concept of the individual. This is essential and entertaining reading for anyone concerned about the protection of liberty of expression.
