comment:
"Head's knowledge of the structure of television worldwide is monumental, as is his ability to organize it into books. In Broadcasting in Africa 35 authors, including Head himself, have contributed essays which give a comprehensive picture of African broadcasting country by country, and the role which non-Africans play in shaping it. Information given for each African nation includes population, receivers per thousand, radio transmitter sites, area per site. Otherwise information varies a bit, with longer discussions for larger countries. The authors discuss the system against the background of such factors as geography, politics, and language, and include broadcasting history and, when available, audience data. The second half of the book is concemed with the ways in which other nations are influencing African broadcasting. Here are discussions of international broadcasting agencies and programs, religious broadcasting, foreign aid, training, research, educational uses to which broadcasting is put, and the commerce of broadcasting. Head concludes with an agenda for further study. Appendixes give technical problems of spectrum utilization, the uses of broadcasting in African political crises, historical and demographic data, a summary of system facilities, and languages used in broadcasting. There is a lengthy bibliography and a comprehensive index." (Eleanor Blum, Frances G. Wilhoit: Mass media bibliography. 3rd ed. Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 1990 Nr. 650)
