This is an authoritative dictionary, with a distinguished editorial board representing all facets of communications and broadcasting. A solid purchase for public, academic, or special libraries serving media programs. "Choice"

This revised and expanded third edition of Diamant's now-classic "The Broadcast Communications Dictionary" contains almost three times as many entries as the original volume, providing both beginning and experienced communications personnel with an invaluable lexicographical tool. Hailed as highly recommended by "Millimeter" and a must by "Television/Radio Age," "The Broadcast Communications Dictionary" is a unique guide to the technical, slang, and commonly-used words that broadcast communicators and engineers use in English-speaking countries everywhere. Here--completely cross-referenced to British terminology--are more than 5,000 terms currently in use in all areas of radio and television programing and production; network and station operations; broadcast equipment and engineering; audio and video tape recording; performing talent; agency and client advertising procedures; media usage; research; defense, government, trade, and allied groups.

Among the entries new to the third edition are several hundred items generated by the development of computerization and satellite technology and a host of fresh definitions spawned by the accelerating expansion of cable television. As in previous editions, all entries are in alphabetical order. Extensive cross-referencing offers additional information where appropriate. A brief up-to-date bibliography lists more detailed technical reference works in individual fields. Logically organized, easy to use, and now extensively revised and expanded, "The Broadcast Communications Dictionary" underlines the complex interrelationships among all spheres of contemporary communications activity. It will be an indispensable resource for broadcasting and communications students, as well as for those employed in production and broadcasting facilities nationwide.
