The first two volumes are outstanding both as a history of the business, but also for their insight into the political and cultural environment in which radio broadcasting took shape in the US. The third book also contains some interesting insight, especially into the role of television in first enabling the communist witchhunts, and then in bringing down the chief instigators of the witchhunts. Unfortunately, as the book moves into the sixties, it gets bogged down in the ideological battles that were still going on when this book was written (publication date is 1970). Consequently, this book has less to offer than the first two in the series did.
