Power, The Press And The Technology Of Freedom
Power, The Press And The Technology Of Freedom
By Leonard R. Sussman
Freedom House, 1990, 514 pp

Drawing on a lifetime of interest in international journalism, the author, former director of Freedom House, makes some pungent observations about the power of information. He has many concerns about the impediments to the free flow of information, especially in the Third World and in socialist societies. Imbued with optimism, he sees a new information age ahead based on Integrated Systems Digital Networks, which will make available easily and instantaneously all forms and types of news in the coming global village.
