Communication History in Canada , Second Edition, contains 5 sections and just under 30 readings. The readings cover technological, social, political, and economic topics concerning the historical evolution of communication and mass media in Canada, beginning in the eighteenth century. All of the readings have been previously published, mostly by journals or academic presses, the majority within the past five years.
In most cases, the readings examine the historical period when new media or communication technologies were introduced, along with subsequent changes to social relations, business practices, state regulation, and existing media and communication systems. A wide range of analytical approaches is represented, from neo-Marxism to post-modernist theories of reader response. Most of the readings are empirical in nature, and none are heavily theoretical or laden with jargon. They are accessible to the undergraduate audience.
The readings, written by researchers or teachers of Canadian communication history, encompass a wide cross-section of disciplines-Communication Studies, Journalism, Media Studies, History, Film, and Geography. Of the universities represented-among them Brock, Carleton, McMaster, Toronto, Queen's, Concordia, York, Manitoba, Western Ontario, Windsor, Saskatchewan, Alberta-many of which have large or recently launched communication programs.
The book has a general introduction and concise introductory comments for each of the sections, for interpretation and cohesion. Annotated further readings and critical thinking questions are included in the part openers.
