Book News Annotation:
Revising her Ph.D. dissertation in economics and politics for the University of Sussex, Grimme analyzes the standardization and technology adoption of digital broadcasting, focusing on recent developments in European, the US, and Japanese audiovisual sectors. Standardization issues of crucial to the industry, she argues, because it is constrained by network externalties and compatibility requirements, and has distinct characteristics that make the development of advanced television technologies a particularly important issue to players and society at large. She does not provide a bibliography.
