Reviewed by David Blackall This book holds a brave position, both in its analyses and its freedom from political, ideological or theoretical encumbrances. It contributes to the necessary erosion of a false notion that television and its effects are simplistic because television is young, simple and stupid. The book is reflexive in its acknowledgement of its own observational and analytical position. This runs a danger of superior posturing, yet "New Patterns in Global Television" pulls itself free of such dangers through its strong research.
