Examines the impact of the breakup of American Telephone and Telegraph on the telecommunications industry and analyzes the telecommunications policies of the United States government

?Irwin has presented a balanced but brief statement of the changes occurring in the industry, as these technical changes have wrought rivalry despite the regulatory atmosphere. Given its brevity, this volume serves as a good introduction to students of economic and government regulations; no formal background in economic analysis is necessary to appreciate Irwin's forceful message. Good bibliography.... Lower-division undergraduates and up. Also public libraries.?-Choice
