From the Inside Flap:

Mass Communication In Japan offers a rare inside look at mass media in an information society intimately related to and infinitely different from our own.

Japan's 124 million people are voracious readers and TV watchers- each household receives 1.67 copies of a newspaper and has its TV set on for eight hours every day. Consequently, four out of five of the world's largest newspapers are Japanese, and Fuji Sankei is one of the giant media conglomerates. Today Japan ranks second in the world (after the United States) in per capita advertising expenditures.

The book explores Japan's diverse, yet unified, mix whereby a handful of conglomerates produces a vast array of media choices. While serious magazines proliferate, comic books predominate. A TBS-TV reporter can broadcast from a Soviet Mir space station, and technical innovations abound, including hand-held TV and news by fax.
