Pressestimmen"In an era dominated by television and increasingly focused on the Internet as the new kid on the media block, Miller offers a valuable history lesson by reminding us of the power once yielded by radio. The best inoculation against the hyperbolic claims of new media is to understand the commonalities as well as the unique features of the various media that have shaped public consciousness in the past century. In this still unfolding narrative, radio has often been overlooked or taken for granted. Miller helps us avoid these mistakes and should encourage us all to take another, closer listen to the voices in the ether." --Larry Gross, Sol Worth Professor, The Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania "Miller's book is a wholly original contribution to the study of both early American and contemporary radio. Perhaps his greatest strength is his ability to integrate theory with historical evidence. Miller's reading of both the "War of the Worlds" and FDR's Fireside Chats as being inflected by the radio reporting of the Hindenberg disaster is as unique as it is valuable. Emergency Broadcasting belongs alongside other significant radio books such as Noise Water Meat and Wireless Imagination." --Martin Spinelli, Ph.D., Professor of Radio and Media Studies, Brooklyn College of the City University of New York "Miller adds a theoretical context with which to assess these programs, and he effectively ties his findings to radio (and Internet) content available today. His approach is surely timely for he is really exploring how radio dealt (and deals) with real or imagined threats to national security." --The Journalism and Mass Communication Educator
