Tube : the invention of television by David E Fisher( Book )

18 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the half century since its commercial unveiling, television has become the undisputed master of communications media, revolutionizing the way postwar generations have viewed the world. Yet almost no one in America knows how television was created, who created it, or how it actually works. The inventors of television were a diverse group of iconoclasts from different corners of the world - including an Idaho farm boy turned college dropout, an eccentric, sickly Scotsman, and two Russian Americans. These men - Philo T. Farnsworth, John Logie Baird, Charles Francis Jenkins, Ernst Alexanderson, Vladimir Zworykin, and the corporate visionary David Sarnoff - each had one eye on the others as they raced for fortune and scientific glory. Tube traces their progress, from the laboratory prototypes that drew public laughter to the vicious courtroom battles for control of what would become an enormous market power. Taking us through the advent of "living color" and beyond, authors David E. Fisher and Marshall Jon Fisher conclude with a forecast of the latest digital technologies and their impact
Backhanded gift : a novel by Marshall Fisher( )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It's the late 1980s, and Robert Cherney has left New York to teach tennis in Munich. In addition, he's coaching the Mattathias Club men's league team, a motley goup of neurotics whose eccentricities seem exacerbated by their situtation as Jews living in Germany. He's also trying to forget Lexa, the focus of years of erotic obsession back in New York. . . As Robert searches for the right woman and his true calling, he can't help but wonder if an insufficient gift is worse than no gift at all."--Page 4 of cover
