As focus shifted from the creation and development of global communication markets to their intense regulation in the mid twentieth century, Jill Hills documents attempts by the United States and other governments to direct, replace, and bypass international telecommunications institutions. The historical framework behind this control--where the market was regulated, by what institution, controlled by what power, and to whose benefit--masterfully complements Hills\u2019s analysis of power relations within the global communications arena.
