Maverick: A Dissident View of Broadcasting Today, by Bob Quinn
Published in 2001, this important, thought-provoking book offers a unique and challenging insight into broadcasting in Ireland. Its insider's view opens up debate about one of the most pervasive influences of modern society.
Quinn is revealing about the way in which broadcasting is dominated by a small metropolitan circle and he describes how unwilling broadcasters have been to resist political censorship.
An Irish Times review said that the book is "that rare and welcome thing, a lifting of the veil that covers the decision-making process in institutions of the State."
