This book marks a milestone in the understanding of how we are affected by television. -- Daniel Schorr National Public RadioVom Verlag:
Constituting a new television genre, live broadcasts of "historic" events have become world rituals which, according to Dayman and Katz, have the potential for transforming societies even as they transfix viewers around the globe.
