Summary
Littleton, a writer and journalist who has covered the TV industry for decades, presents an analysis of the Writers Guild of America strike of 2007-2008. In particular, she focuses on the technological and in turn economic transformations that precipitated it--namely, the Internet and new digital media. She considers how writers saw themselves battling corporate consolidation and the shrinking of the middle-class, the effect that the strike had on what was on TV, and the transformations to the Writers Guild that took place in those years. Like many analyses of labor struggles, this one focuses on power-players like managers, CEOs and union representatives. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
