007485007485: BRAND NEW. Covers and pages are clean, unmarked, bright, tightly bound and sharp cornered. Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. "Events around the world are broadcast by giant media players such as CNN, BBC, NHK, etc. Consumers of news media receive the final message without knowing the processes that the images, the text and the sound have gone through. The media players can be considered as professional generators of national news, who manipulate presentations according to professional standards as well as local needs that are culturally based. This book explores how powerful political and economic agendas in the national media environment influence the production processes. It shows how the outcome is planned and negotiated between correspondents on location, editors and popular anchors that express the local cultural and political heritage. The study is based on interviews with media experts and newsroom observation at two Japanese TV stations; a public station (NHK) and a commercial station (TV Asahi), and it shows how events are 'domesticated' for the target audience."

Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. "AT&T's divestiture was the largest corporate reorganization in history and has had international repercussions. It was a major development in American economic policy, and a prominent part of the deregulation movement of the late 1970s. This study reveals the internal decision-making process at AT&T and explains how private and public interests combined to shape corporate and public policy in late 20th-century America. Temin weaves the strands of politics, economics, business, and law into an accessible narrative history that will be of interest to the general reader who wants to know about government business interaction and how it affects American citizens. Temin portrays divestiture as a great experiment in public policy, competition, openness, and international policy. He concludes that the experiment has been a mix of deliberate design and uncontrollable forces whose outcome was not foreseen. "
