Those interested in radio history "will be entranced by the biography about undeniably the most important figure in radio programming and management at mid-century." (David MacFarland) This fast-paced biography describes problems in station ownership, management, the development of a major network system, live and recreated baseball and football programming, the "re-invention" of radio in the 1950s, to compete with TV and print media, Top 40 music hits, disc jockey programming, and the use of local news. Important concerns regarding the Federal Communications Commission, editorializing, and public interests are considered as well.

Since the Revolutionary War, American military men have published troop newspapers to provide amusement, to keep themselves informed, to aid in maintaining morale, and to encourage those engaged in boring or dangerous pursuits. Beginning as informal ventures, these papers received official sanction as high command began to realize their morale benefits and eventually became an accepted adjunct to the waging of war. Based on a close reading of many soldiers' newspapers, this volume is the first book to provide a historical survey of the U.S. military press from the Revolutionary War to the present. Drawing on the rich detail in the troop newspapers, the book also provides a social record of the attitudes, aspirations, and life of those engaged in war, and considers the increasingly controversial issue of freedom of the press in war time. Taking a chronological approach, the study opens with a consideration of the Revolutionary War and turns to a consideration of the Mexican War of 1846-1848 in chapter 2. The Civil War papers are covered in chapter 3. Chapter 4 discusses the period from 1865 to 1917, when the military press matured. The next two chapters cover the ground forces papers and the air service papers of World War I. Chapters 7 and 8 are devoted to World War II, and the final chapter covers the period since World War II. This volume should become a standard in journalism history.

"Non-theatrical film" is the term used to describe motion pictures which are not shown in movie theatres, but are produced and/or distributed to markets that include the educational community, home, and business and industry. Slide covers the early Hollywood-produced features and short subjects in a format other than 35mm for homes, hospitals and correctional institutions, as well as industrial films. This is also the history of two major non-theatrical libraries, Bell and Howell and Kodascope, both of which were founded to service the needs of purchasers of the then newly introduced 16mm projectors.

At the time of Marshall McLuhan's death in 1980, his was a major voice in our understanding on media and society. And yet, few analyses of his impact have been written. In clarifying McLuhan, Neill provides a critical, yet sympathetic assessment of McLuhan's work and impact. While the author dismisses McLuhan's basic theory that the medium is the message, he points to McLuhan's importance, and argues for a re-examination of McLuhan as an artist and a poet.
