Book by Blue Howard


Wonderful...without question, Mr. Blue's book illuminates every aspect of that Golden Age. Film & History: An Interdisciplinary Journal Fascinating...Recommended. CHOICE ...reveals the previously unheralded role of the American Jewish Committee American Jewish Committee Newsletter Exceptional! Today's Books A nonfiction book with superb research...a fascinating and highly readable book about a major period in the history of both the nation and radio. Radio Recall This may well be the best book on American radio ever written. Blue has captured the vividness of network radio in its golden era, meeting the crises of war with intelligence as well as drama (and comedy); and the now forgotten national tragedy of Cold War era crackdown on the very creators of the best programs. Radio has never recovered, and now we know the reasons. -- Paul Buhle, author of Popular Culture in America and Radical Hollywood Brown University A Tour de force of research and writing...full of creative and complex characters...Howard Blue is to be congratulated on the writing and publication of his book. He has retrieved a valuable story and begun a long and complex academic investigation into the role of radio drama as propaganda and the value of audio drama texts in cultural studies. -- Tim Crook, Head of Radio, Senior Lecturer, Media Law and Ethics, Media and Communications Dept., Goldsmiths' College, University of London Ultimately, it is a chilling statement about censorship and scapegoating, one that increases the reader's sense of incredulity over how the nation could have so rapidly descended to such an iniquitous level following a war whose very essence was grounded in a desire to protect freedom from tyranny. This is an important study, one that should be a required reading in programs in journalism. Communication Booknotes Quarterly [Blue] is at his impassioned best in describing the contents of wartime radio drama from the perspective of authors now in their nineties who remember their youthful wartime work with evident pleasure. Journal of American History ...Blue has done an admirable job of showing that Americans were bombarded daily with many perspectives, helping them to make sense of their world. His thought-provoking book indicates that much work remains to be done, especially for comparable studies on other media industries. Just as the wartime radio broadcasters dramatized serious subjects that appealed to wide audiences, Blue has done likewise. As a freelance writer and educator, he has written a book full of anecdotes to satisfy old-time radio enthusiasts but also has provided a valuable resource suitable for media scholars. One thing is clear: Words at War has proven that the drama away from the microphone was every bit as remarkable as the drama transmitted into American homes. Journal of Cold War Studies Anyone interested in the impact of American Communists and fellow travelers on mass media will find Words at War extremely rewarding. Howard Blue spotlights a medium largely neglected in the literature on the blacklist. American Communist History ...a layered and intriguing work...this marvelous book...reminds us that the Second World War was as much a battle of ideas as of troops and weapons. Jhistory, H-Net Book Review (July 2006) Howard Blue is to be congratulated on the writing and publication of his book. He has retrieved a valuable story and begun a long and complex academic investigation into the role of radio drama as propaganda and the value of audio drama texts in cultural studies. The Radio Journal, Vol. 1, No. 2
