"'Communication Ideas' is the first attempt to place publishing in America in its political and commercial setting. The book addresses the political implications of scholarly communication in the era of a new computerized technology. Horowitz does so by examing the classic problems of political theory (such issues as property versus rights and elite management versus citizen participation) in the context of scholarly publishing. But the discussion extends considerably beyond scholarly publishing into communication as a whole, encompassing cable cable and satellite television controls. Ultimately Horowitz considers such questions as: Who owns knowledge? How is it generated? What are its costs?"; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
