Peter Grant's memoir, Changing Channels, recounts a life dedicated to guiding Canada in its journey towards a distinctive place in the world of popular culture. In documenting his wide range of experiences, from stints at UNESCO and the CRTC, to advocating for the underdog in regard to communications and cultural policy, Grant establishes himself as Canada's authority on communications law.
'The dust jacket of Peter Grant's autobiography Changing Channels: Confessions of a Canadian Communications Lawyer accurately describes it as a "sweeping memoir" about a person "who pioneered the field of communications law in Canada". It is a treasure trove of anecdotes which, when woven together as skilfully as Grant has done, provides a rich history of significant events in the development of communications law and policy in the four decades during which Grant practiced law in this field. As such, it is a must read for law students, lawyers (of all seniority) as well as students and practitioners of public policy.'
