The Wired Nation. Cable TV: The Electronic Communications Highway.
Smith, Ralph Lee
The problems and potentials of cable television are examined in this book, which begins by describing the technological basis and current state of cable television. Topics covered include the economic base of the industry and the struggles for economic control, the development of a regulatory structure, the relationship between cable television and the telephone company, and grass roots action on cable television. A final chapter discusses the potential of cable television to serve as an "electronic highway" and drastically revise the economic and social structure of the entire nation. (RH)
