America's Mass Media Merchants
America's Mass Media Merchants
By William H. Read
Johns Hopkins, 1977, 209 pp

A pathbreaking study of the ubiquitous nature of American film, television, and print media around the globe, creating "an increasing level of mutual sensitivity among the peoples of the world" through "a loosely arranged central nervous system comprised of American-operated, American-affiliated, or American-inspired mass media." The results, the author concludes, are on balance beneficial to mankind. This is an important book which should encourage further examination of this interesting subject.
