In this history of television, Magoun (executive director, David Sarnoff Library, David Sarnoff Research Center, Princeton) not only explains the development and basic workings of this technology, but also the processes, personalities, and business decisions involved, and TV's impact on American values. In a "life cycle" framework, he traces TV from its protracted birth through the death of cathode tube TVs and resurrection in digital form. The author addresses issues relating to the paternity of inventions, government regulation, and changing broadcast standards. The book includes b&w illustrations.
