9780205693092: Communication in History: Technology, Culture, Society (100 Cases)

Updated in a new 6th edition, Communication in History reveals how media has been influential in both maintaining social order and as powerful agents of change. With revised new readings, this anthology continues to be, as one reviewer wrote, "the only book in the sea of History of Mass Communication books that introduces readers to a more expansive, intellectually enlivening study of the relationship between human history and communication history". From print to the Internet, this book encompasses a wide-range of topics, that introduces readers to a more expansive, intellectually enlivening study of the relationship between human history and communication history.

From the Back Cover:

Significant changes to the sixth edition will provide you with greater coverage of major media developments in the past to help you comprehend the full impact and influence of media in maintaining social order and promoting change.

 

1. Reorganization of the text. The sixth edition has been reorganized to provide greater unity within and among the eight

parts of the text.

 

2. Expanded coverage of major media developments in the past includes the role of printing in the rise of the modern

state, and an expanded examination of communication in our own era of proliferating media forms–television, video, digital technology, and the internet.

 

3. Introductions to each section provide a rationale for that particular section, an explanation of key concepts and transitions, and background material to help you to better appreciate the individual essays.

 

4. New authors. New authors include Lisa Gitelman, Jonathan Sterne, John Durham Peters, Henry Jenkins, and Manuel Castells.

 

5. Updated essay selections. New selections address the development of sound recording, the emergence of the modalities

of broadcasting, television in the new post-mass media environment and the expanding social significance of mobile communications and networks, providing you with a more all-encompassing view of communication history.
