This book examines the state of Canada's cultural industries--book, periodical and newspaper publishing, radio and television broadcasting, sound recording, filmmaking and video production--in the final years of the twentieth century.

Fourteen authors describe the history, structure, markets, technologies and policy framework of each industry. Many of their essays also examine the role that the industries play in delivering Canadian cultural products to Canadian audiences, tracing the profound influence they exercise in the life of the nation.

Offering detailed analysis and statistical profiles, The Cultural Industries in Canada presents a unique portrait of this key sector of the economy.
