"We need books like James L. Baughman's The Republic of Mass Culture."

"A useful reference for media scholars at many levels... comprehensive in its coverage, giving especially good coverage to journalistic and other sources often overlooked by academics."

"Successfully integrates media content, commerce, technology, and external influences and... traces the interconnected web of the established media and the emergent medium of television... An important contribution to the history of media industries."

"A remarkably complete historical account of the changing nature of the media industries in postwar America."

"Factual and anecdotal, Baughman's book will be useful to students and scholars seeking a wide overview of media history since 1941... His work is unusual in its breadth: it covers not only motion pictures and television but also radio, newspaper and periodical publishing, and even to some extent the music industry."
