Integrating three major concerns - television as technology, industry, and art - the book introduces the complex, fascinating, and often overlooked story of television and its impact on American life. It ends with a provocative meditation on the effect since the 1980s of competing technologies, the consolidation of media ownership, and the emerging aesthetics of twenty-first-century programming. Written by the two prominent experts on American television, this book includes several illustrative features on leading figures in TV's development. It is the most compact and authoritative history of the medium to date."@en ;
