Global Communications And Political Power

By Donald Wilhelm

Transaction, 1990, 172 pp.

This is a somewhat rambling discourse on the impact of communication satellites and foreign broadcasting on public awareness of international issues. The most interesting sections deal with the politically educational role that television has recently had within the Soviet Union. Glasnost has enabled the 150 million Soviet television viewers to learn a great deal about their own system and to watch and participate in a revolution in progress.
