Gerald W. Brock, Telecommunication Policy for the Information Age Review of Industrial Organization 13: 491–494, 1998. 491 Book Review Telecommunication Policy for the Information Age. Gerald W. Brock. Cambridge Harvard University Press, 1994, 324 pages, $45.00. The telecommunications industry is changing at a blinding speed. Those not directly working in the industry, as well as those who are, find it difficult to stay abreast of the changing technology, players, institutional rules, and significant economic and political forces. In his new book, Telecommunication Policy for the Information Age, Gerald Brock provides a much needed summary of the evolution of the major events in the field during the Post-World War II era. Brock is an ideal candidate for this job. His first book, The Telecommunications Industry: The Dynamics of Market Structure provides one of the most insightful accounts of the industry’s early history. One of the most notable features of this first book is how Brock reviews historical material and uses his training in economic theory to provide keen insights into the evolution of telecommunications. A few years after the publication of The Telecommunications Industry,Brock joined the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). During his tenure there, he played a key role in formulating policy.
