Hilmes, Michele

SUMMARY

"NBC: America's Networkmakes a significant contribution to our understanding of American broadcasting. Hilmes makes a convincing case for the appropriateness of an examination of a single firm, NBC, to illuminate the major themes and events of American broadcast history. In addition, she adeptly synthesizes a strong set of individually-authored chapters on specific historical periods, controversies, and program genres into a coherent whole. The writing is concise and lively and the breadth and depth of the material makes this a exceptional work."--William Boddy, author ofNew Media and Popular Imagination "NBC: America's Networkis an outstanding book about one network across US television history. Hilmes is an excellent editor who brings broad insights about the television industry to bear on this volume. The individual essays present different approaches and methods, and together provide an integrated history of NBC with analysis that respects the medium and the people that worked in it."--Mary Beth Haralovich, co-editor ofTelevision, History, and American Culture: Feminist Critical Essays. "Filled with highly readable essays by the top scholars in the field,NBC: America's Networkexplores key, often watershed moments in the network's history to illuminate the central role broadcasting has played in constituting public discourse about what is-and what is not-in the public interest. A welcome addition to the history of broadcasting, and essential reading for anyone interested in the transformative role of radio and TV in modern life."--Susan J. Douglas, author ofListening In: Radio and the American ImaginationHilmes, Michele is the author of 'NBC America's Network', published 2007 under ISBN 9780520250819 and ISBN 0520250818.
