The History of Communication


Acquiring Editor: Daniel Nasset

This series invites original and well-researched books on the history of media--radio, TV, newspapers, magazines, the Internet--and on their many functions as reporters, advertisers, opinion leaders, public relations for government and corporate interests, and businesses that compete with each other. Histories of major media, biographies of important figures, and studies of key events in communications are welcome. Essay collections are not encouraged.
