The essays in this volume investigate the impact of all media, including the emerging technologies, on the social, cultural, economic and political climate in the context of aesthetic values, and issues of gender, race and class.

Transmission examines the array of forces moving the contemporary video landscape forward, comparing the past with the present as well as the future as it looks at the impact of video on commercial television, the relationship of media to the social causes it (mis)represents and the effects of new communication tools on participating constituents.
