Legal and Political Aspects of Satellite Telecommunication: An Annotated Bibliography.
Shervis, Katherine, Comp.
The potential of satellites for telecommunication is enormous; however, it is possible that political and legal barriers rather than technological considerations will ultimately shape the utilization of satellite systems. This annotated bibliography is designed for use by lawyers, political scientists, technicians, engineers, and scholars who need to ascertain the state of the legal and political complexities surrounding satellite communications. It begins with a discussion of the background and goals of the EDSAT Center at the University of Wisconsin and then presents a guide to the use of the bibliography and a list of abbreviations. The bibliography is separated into a record identification index, listing references alphabetically by author's name, and a permuted index, which is a Key Word Out of Context (KWOC) system to provide access to references by subject. Each reference in the record identification index includes author, title, source, key words and an abstract. (RH)
