Summary: Unsilent Revolution is the story of the impact television news has had on politics, current events and the print media. Looking at major events over the past four decades, this work is an episodic history of the rise and ascendancy of television news. Donovan and Scherer have used several unpublished journalists'' accounts in this book, which differs from other studies in that it synthesizes scholarly sources along with first-hand experiences.

"They are at their best as they amble through four decades of the most memorable moments in television coverage, from Richard Nixon's 'Checkers' speech of 1952 to the old guard's attempted coup in the Soviet Union in 1991. As a compilation of images and episodes, this book is a feast. They do make some fascinating observations. These authors have given us a welcome reminder of how deeply we have been touched by television news, and they encourage us to recall episodes that go beyond their own book."
