Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sixth Edition With a New Preface on the Internet and Telecommunications Cartels.

Since this classic on corporate control of the media was first published in 1983, the number of corporations dominating our media has shrunk from fifty to merely six. Once called "alarmist," Bagdikian's claims are uncanny and chilling in their accuracy. This much-needed sixth edition follows up on the digital revolution, revealing startling details of a new communications cartel within the United States.

Review:
