Why have radio and television never been granted the same First Amendment freedoms that we have always accorded the printed
word? In this fascinating work, Lucas A. Powe, Jr., examines the strange paradox governing our treatment of the two types
of media. This title is part of UC Press's Voices Revived program, which commemorates University of California Press's mission
to seek out and cultivate the brightest minds and give them voice, reach, and impact. Drawing on a backlist dating to 1893,
Voices Revived makes high-quality, peer-reviewed scholarship accessible once again using print-on-demand technology. This
title was originally published in 1987.
