Description - Dynamics of Modern Communication by Patrice Flichy
A social history of communication technology from 1790 to 1995 and a critical analysis of the social shaping and impact of the communication technologies. The text explores the interaction of technology and social context processes such as the move from public to private forms of communication. The moulding of technologies by political and economic forces and the demands of users are also discussed here. The book focuses on: the birth of the modern state at the end of the 18th century; the development of stock markets; the transformation of private life in the modern nuclear family; and the individualism of the late 20th century.
