Publisher Description

Paul Starr's Creation of the Media provides a rich history of the social, political and legal infrastructure that shaped the American media from its earliest origin. Starr examines in incredible detail the political decisions made from approximately 1600 to 1941 regarding public discourse in most of its forms and analyzes how those contributed to the development of the media. (1) Starr analyzes the context of American decision-making through an elaborate comparative analysis of the British, European and Canadian experience in an effort to fully describe the options available to the American power structure at critical points in history. At times the sheer volume of the comparative detail threatens to overwhelm the casual reader, but anyone seeking a comprehensive understanding will embrace Starr's approach with gusto. (2) Starr's narrative includes numerous footnotes to extensive scholarly works and other useful source material. As a result, Creation of the Media represents an exceptional resource for the interested lay reader as well as the dedicated academic. I. AN ANALYSIS OF CONSTITUTIVE MOMENTS
