Revolutions in Communication is a critically acclaimed survey of media history now available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and directly from the publisher, Continuum International Press. The book topped the Amazon sales list for media history in the summer of 2012.* The book’s web resources are being migrating to a new site — http://www.revolutionsincommunication.com — so check there for up-to-date resources.
The book is a social and technological history that explores four major epochs of the mass media through the technologies that characterized their development — printing, imaging, broadcasting and digital media.
The historical narrative in Revolutions in Communication centers around technological change — a common thread that unites global media history. This approach also provides an alternative to nationalistic and professionally oriented narratives that have guided media history in the past.
