Tube of Plenty: The Evolution of American Television
书籍英文名：Tube of Plenty: The Evolution of American Television
书籍简介：Based on the classic History of Broadcasting in the United States, Tube of Plenty represents the fruit of several decades’ labor. When Erik Barnouw–premier chronicler of American broadcasting and a participant in the industry for fifty years–first undertook the project of recording its history, many viewed it as a light-weight literary task concerned mainly with “entertainment” trivia. Indeed, trivia such as that found in quiz programs do appear in the book, but Barnouw views them as part of a complex social tapestry that increasingly defines our era.
