International Broadcasting by Satellite: Issues of Regulation, Barriers to Communication


"He is concerned with the international debate about control of a technology allowing one country to talk with nations of another without any means of governmental control of that information flow. That question has rattled around UN meetings for years, and it is the tracing of that debate to which the author (Northern Illinois University) addresses himself. To an extent, he updates the only previous detailed study of the debate, Kathryn M. Queeny's Direct Broadcast Satellites and the United Nations (CH, Jul '79), but at the same time he goes further in assessing some of the larger trends in cultural, technical, and economic dimensions of sovereignty. The seven chapters are supplemented with several appendixes of UN and related documents, a short list of reading, and an index.... The monograph does a creditable job of making sense out of often murky debates and documents." - Choice
