-Jonathan Gray, author of Watching with The Simpsons:Television, Parody, and Intertextuality, co-editor ofFandom: Identities and Communities in a Mediated World
"The author describes this broad survey as 'a sustained reflection on the tensions produced by the problem of knowledge in and about television.' Hartley argues that television's history and historiography have not been well done thus far. The book as a whole offers something of a philosophy of television. Recommended." (Choice Reviews, December 2008)"Grand in scope, bold, witty, and engaging, TelevisionTruths fashions a provocative new philosophy for the study andappreciation of both TV and a TV polity."
-Horace Newcomb, Director, George Foster Peabody Awards,The University of Georgia
"As always, John Hartley's provocative arguments andexamples push against the boundaries and restrictions ofconventional approaches. His focus on the multiple contexts oftelevision adds greatly to our store of key questions about'television.'"
