The Dynamics of Dependency: A Polynesian Encounter with Television.
Varan, Duane
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v16 n2 p197-225 Jun 1999
Discusses the Cook Islands experience in acquiring television and how highlighting push, pull, and temporal factors accounts for the creation and maintenance of dependency relationships. Demonstrates how the dependency relationships cannot be reduced to "natural" market forces but rather a range of strategies which Television New Zealand has employed to further reinforce such dependency and limit access to alternative suppliers.
