"A discussion confined to the legal constraints on the press is a clear invitation to deal with law to the exclusion of the fundamental problems facing the mass media in a region which appears to be in a state of political, social, and ideological transition. This is so because the law exerts a disappearing influence on fundamental social and political issues." (author)
