It would be difficult to cite any technological innovation whose impact on the fabric of daily living has been as pervasive as that of television. Within a few decades after its invention, television was providing, literally, a window to the world. A sole inventor of television does not exist. Instead, it came about through a remarkable interaction of several hundred scientists. Interviews with the scientists whose imagination and enterprise combined to make television a reality, extensive archival research worldwide, and rare photos make this book the one definitive history and the only authoritative account. Early inventions, the first devices, early camera tubes, the mechanical era, the kinescope, the iconoscope, and more. Extensive references.

From the Inside Flap:

No other technological innovation can be cited whose impact on the fabric of daily living has been as pervasive as that of television. A sole inventor does not exist; television came about through the remarkable interactions of several hundred scientists. Interviews with these scientists, extensive archival research worldwide, and rare photos make this book--and its following volume--the one definitive history and the only authoritative account. Herein are the early inventions, the first devices, early camera tubes, the mechanical era, the kinescope, the iconoscope, and more. There are very extensive references.

About the Author:

The late Albert Abramson worked at CBS for over 30 years as a cameraman, videotape editor, and sound technician, and was the author of several books and articles on the history of television aside from the two-volume set from McFarland. He lived in Las Vegas, Nevada.
