12 12 13 19 This book probably deserves credit than I m iving it It provides what seems to be a thorough history of media as its title suggests from print to today But apart from being a Class of 92: Out of Our League good survey text it offers little else of substance For instance early on its authors refuse to pick a side in the technological determinism debate Further itives a Portrait of a Starter: An Unhidden Story good account of many of the seminal historical texts on print radio television etc but doesn t do than allude to them Critiues of particular arguments rarely take up than a paragraph All of this merely results in a preponderance of texts for further consideration without a clear idea of which of those texts might provide relevant details worth considering All of this aside I did appreciate the authors attempt to chart a middleround and to keep a historical perspective This would probably be a useful book for undergrads It s undertheorized from a raduate student perspective however L ho dovuto leggere in uanto libro di testo per un corso accademi.

Associated with digital communication technology the rise of the internet and the phenomenon of Fallen Angel: The Passion of Fausto Coppi globalizationAvoiding technological determinism and rejecting assumptions of straightforward evolutionary progress this book brings out the rich and varied histories of communication media It will be an ideal text for students in history media and cultural studies and journalism but it will also appeal to a wideeneral readershi. ,
