Founded in 1934, the NAEB began as a disorganized collection of undersupported university broadcasters. Shepperd traces the setbacks, small victories, and trial and error experiments that took place as thousands of advocates built a media coalition premised on the belief that technology could ease social inequality through equal access to education and information. The bottom-up, decentralized network they created implemented a different economy of scale and a vision of a mass media divorced from commercial concerns. At the same time, they transformed advice, criticism, and methods adopted from other sectors into an infrastructure that supported public broadcasting in the 1960s and beyond.
“Equipped with a wealth of archival research and a fresh perspective, Shepperd reshapes the history of public broadcasting convincingly and with great respect for the practitioners, researchers, and reformers responsible for its development and influence.”--Deborah L. Jaramillo, author of The Television Code: Regulating the Screen to Safeguard the Industry
