Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"[This book] is the first to cover the full period from 1928 to the present ... It is also the only fully developed work to question the received wisdom among nationalists about the proper' role of broadcasting in this country and the only one to include in it the very important Quebec perspectives on the question ... It is substantial, well-documented, and presents a point of view that deserves far more attention." Edwin R. Black, Department of Political Studies, Queen's University. "adds several new dimensions to the study [of broadcasting] ... The arguments about the public' and about broadcasting in general are both made with a deft touch and a light hand. The research itself makes the case and the supporting documentation is thorough." Liora Salter, Department of Communications, Simon Fraser University.
