More About This Textbook

Overview

Methods of Historical Analysis in Electronic Media provides a foundation for historical research in electronic media by addressing the literature and the methods—traditional and the eclectic methods of scholarship as applied to electronic media. It is about history—broadcast electronic media history and history that has been broadcast, and also about the historiography, research written, and the research yet to be written.

Divided into five parts, this book:
*addresses the challenges in the application of the historical methods to broadcast history;
*reviews the various methods appropriate for electronic-media research based on the nature of the object under study;
*suggests new approaches to popular historical topics;
*takes a broad topical look at history in broadcasting; and
*provides a broad overview of what has been accomplished, a historian's challenges, and future research.

Intended for students and researchers in broadcast history, Methods of Historical Analysis in Electronic Media provides an understanding of the qualitative methodological tools necessary for the study of electronic media history, and illustrates how to find primary sources for electronic media research.
