One of the great transitions as the Soviet Union dissolved involved the transformation of state broadcasting in Russia and the Newly Independent States. This book deals with the turmoil associated with struggles in Post-Soviet Russia: the struggles for journalistic editorial autonomy; the bloody media wars between the Yeltsin government and the legislature; the role of the media in the coup; and the role of the United States, other governments, and non-government organizations in shaping the new media.
