Press: I.B.Tauris (March 20, 2002)


Small Screens, Big Ideas brings together specially commissioned writings from British and American contributors to explore themes of diversity in the formative period of the 1950s. 
With radical changes taking place in terrestrial television, this is a timely moment to revisit the decade when television's very novelty was its most striking feature.
Discussing television's role in the construction of national and gender identities and its relation to other media such as theatre, film, and radio, this fresh exploration is based on detailed case-studies of this complex era.

  •     .....that this lazy type of book was stopped? Asking the great and the good to dash out an article, shove them all together, and take the credit for some "innovative" research.
  •     Beware of this book, lovers of retro TV. It's nothing more than a liberal screed that continuously bashes the 50s for not being politically correct and ignores the low crime rates and other positive social & economical factors of that time period.
