Abstract:

Unprecedented worldwide distribution of books, television programs, and other cultural products would seem to augur well for the diversity of ideas. Yet a dwindling number of media conglomerates - significantly American controlled - are increasingly herding consumers toward very profitable "blockbuster" films, books, and recordings at the expense of independent and alternative works. Presenting an essential international perspective, Blockbusters and Trade Wars reveals links between freedom of expression and intellectual diversity.
