xii + 299pp. Hardback. Introduction by George Henry Payne, Member of the Federal Communications Commission. 'A proper report on the state of television today can be rendered only in terms of dynamics and change. For television comes upon the world not isolated but influencing and influenced by technical research; by the economics of telegraphy, telephony, newspapers, the stage, sound motion pictures and sound radio; by laws of Congress, acts of regulatory commissions and decisions of high courts; by programs of education and entertainment, free speech, censorship, private and public morals; and by rights of individuals seeking reward for skill and genius at invention. It is the object of this book to show, in the simplest possible manner, the relationships between those apparently diverse interests.' One of the few non-technical books on television published in the 30s
