Based on a wide variety of press reports and other sources, this volume describes the rapid global spread of VCRs and cassettes, often by illegal means, into even those countries where censorship is the rule and information control has been for hundreds of years the universal practice. This book describes the growing policial uses being made of the medium in both restrictive and more democratic countries. It examines the controls instituted on VCRs and programming by governments and has found even the most severe of these to be almost totally ineffective.
