From the former chief economist of the FCC, a remarkable history of the U.S. government's regulation of the airwaves.

Popular legend has it that before the Federal Radio Commission was established in 1927, the radio spectrum was in chaos, with broadcasting stations blasting powerful signals to drown out rivals. In this fascinating and entertaining history, Thomas Winslow Hazlett, a distinguished scholar in law and economics, debunks the idea that the U.S. government stepped in to impose necessary order. Instead, regulators blocked competition at the behest of incumbent interests and, for nearly a century, have suppressed innovation while quashing out-of-the-mainstream viewpoints.

Hazlett details how spectrum officials produced a "vast wasteland" that they publicly criticized but privately protected. The story twists and turns, as farsighted visionaries-and the march of science-rise to challenge the old regime. Over decades, reforms to liberate the radio spectrum have generated explosive progress, ushering in the "smartphone revolution," ubiquitous social media, and the amazing wireless world now emerging. Still, the author argues, the battle is not even half won.

"A fascinating history¡­ exposing how inefficient, and perhaps corrupt, our spectrum policy really is¡­. Mr. Hazlett devotes a substantial portion of his book to arguments for reforms [and the book] is full of valuable instruction [on] the strategic use of the regulatory process." - Greg Rosston in the Wall Street Journal

"A masterpiece of wisdom and wit, The Political Spectrum proves that, when applied to the airways, the higher the stakes, the higher the waste. Tom Hazlett's narrative is comprehensive, incisive, and characteristically hilarious." - Vernon L. Smith, Chapman University, 2002 Nobel Laureate in Economics
