An excellent extended bibliographic essay, this volume also contains excellent prose introductions at the start of each chapter that provide background on the business of cable, the content of the programming, cable law and regulations, and videotex developments. . . . Current through 1987, this work will remain valuable as a snapshot of the cable industry even when future developments pass it by. . . . A fine scholarly treatment of the cable field, recommended for libraries at all levels. "Choice"

The practical and theoretical issues that cable television has posed for the public and the government, as well as for the industry itself have been the subject of intensive inquiry in the 1980s. Professor Garay's bibliographical guide is the first work to organize, classify, and provide access to this literature. It consists of bibliographical essays and references covering more than four hundred books, government-document, periodical, and periodical article titles that supply primary information on cable-related topics or lead the user to a helpful secondary source.
