"The editors have brought together a team of top experts to provide an understanding of the complexities of media policymaking in Europe. Essential policy issues such as convergence, diversity and pluralism, as well as questions concerning intellectual copyright and competition policy, are discussed in intelligent and accessible language. The book should be required reading for students, politicians and citizens concerned about the cultural future of the European region." - Cees J. Hamelink, Professor of International Communication, University of Amsterdam, Netherlands
