...a well-written, comprehensive text....the book appears to be both concise and comprehensive enough to provide US policymakers with justification for action and with some well-founded policy guidance in specific areas....Policymakers in other countries or regions...will find it particularly useful for comparative purposes....a welcome addition to the reading list of policy planners in liberalizing environments as well as aid agency specialists. * Telecommunications Policy *
