During the late 1980s and early 1990s, the television sector in Western Europe was liberalised. Bouchra Arbaoui investigates the aggregate level changes in television systems after the large-scale introduction of commercial television in the 1980s through a comparative study of 17 Western-European media systems. Arbaoui also explores the way media systems have changed along both dimensions and analyses the relevance of advertising dependency and audience fragmentation for political communication.
