Wildman 573 23. The Future of Television: Understanding Digital Economics Bruce M. Owen 594 Contributors 617 Index 619 Page ix Preface The field of communications policy encompasses economics, engineering, law, psychology, political science, and many other disciplines. Too often these areas are tightly cabined; essays and articles from one discipline are seldom read by scholars and students in another, and they and policymakers are disadvantaged by this segregation. Our objective in assembling this volume is to act as gatherers and synthesizers.

If anything, the field was destined to receive still more attention in the years to come as the federal government assumed responsibility for health care for the poor and the elderly through Medicaid and Medicare. In this environment, it was highly implausible that anything cheap but important would be persistently overlooked for long. Mass communications provided a sharp contrast with medical education and research. On the research front, government was not supporting Page 4 any significant amount of research on either communications policy or the effects of mass media.

Shalom M. Fisch addresses the opposite causal relationship: how research on the effects of television on children affects programming at the Children's Television Workshop. Jay G. Blumler reveals the findings of a recent survey of trends in production and performance of children's television programs on European public broadcasting entities. Finally, Donald F. Roberts provides background and analysis of the debate over the question of whetherand howto engage in rating and labeling programs to protect children, within constitutional bounds, from programming that has sexual or violent content.
