Classic Books on the Internet #3: Telecommunications, Mass Media, and Democracy: The Battle for the Control of U.S. Broadcasting, 1928-1935

This article reviews Robert W. McChesney's book chronicling the early history of the United States government's regulation of radio. Government regulation, McChesney finds, institutionalized a system of corporate control of the airwaves, even while other alternatives were readily available. The reviewer mentions similarities between the struggle over the radio waves and struggles that concern Internet users today.
