Studies in Canadian Communications.
Robinson, Gertrude Joch, Ed.; Theall, Donald F., Ed.
Canada provides a unique example of the way in which practical communication problems have produced an awareness of communication theory, policy, and practice. This book brings together a collection of essays which aim to philosophically, analytically, and historically explore the lessons to be gained from Canadian communications activity and highlight the many contributions that Canada has made to North American communications. The book contains such essays as "Communication Theory and the Marginal Culture: The Socio-aesthetic Dimensions of Communication Study" by Donald Theall; "Canadian Media Regulation" by Frank Peers; "Issues in Canadian Cultural Policy" by Hugo McPherson; "Communication: The State of the Canadian News Media" by Dick MacDonald; "The Politics of Information and Culture During Canada's October Crises" by Gertrude Robinson; "Candadian Communication Theory: Extensions and Interpretations of Harold Innis" by James Carey; and "Moloch or Aquarius: Strategies for Evaluating Future Communications Needs" by Gordon Thompson.
