Overview

In today's global economy, the role of telecommunications is becoming increasingly strategic. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the evolving European Community where the players, issues, emerging technologies, services and policy trends are undergoing unprecedented change.

In this volume, leading scholars from both North America and Europe provide the necessary background information for analyzing European telecommunications policies, including conceptual frameworks, institutional structures, liberalization approaches and new technology and service initiatives. This is the only text to examine issues comparatively across national contexts, and includes a broad perspective of the entire European Community.
