From the Publisher"The user-friendly text—with ‘summaries’ and‘conclusions’ at intervals—will help students tothink for themselves. Meanwhile, general readers will find this aclear introduction to a field of history too significant to be leftsolely to the specialists."
Donald Read, English Historical Review
"In a feat of compression and erudite conciseness,Comparative Media History ranges across several continentsand over two centuries of media history to trace the emergence ofcurrent international media institutions from past historicaltraditions. A brilliant textbook for media students, to be rankedalongside Asa Briggs and Peter Burke’s A Social History ofthe Media as a key introduction to comparative mediastudies."
David Finkelstein, Queen Margaret University College,Edinburgh

The book promises to reshape thinkingand become a touchstone for future research in media history.Indeed, rarely has a book come across my desk that seemed so likelyto so profoundly affect scholarship in a field".
