Television in Europe (Google eBook)
Eli Noam Professor of Finance and Economics and Director of the Institute of Tele-Information Columbia University
Oxford University Press, Jan 11, 1992 - Business & Economics - 408 pages
Like its companion volume, Telecommunications in Europe, this book deals with the evolution of powerful monopoly institutions in the communications field--the public broadcasters--and the dramatic changes that took place in the late 1980s throughout Europe, and transformed the media landscape. It provides a comprehensive view of European broadcasting systems, using the perspective of economics and policy analysis. The introductory part offers a framework for understanding media and the forces of change affecting them. The main section is a unique series of chapters covering the broadcast and cable television systems of almost thirty European countries.
