A Social History of the Media From Gutenberg to the Internet

review A Social History of the Media From Gutenberg to the Internet A Social History of the Media From Gutenberg to the Internet review è 9 Asa Briggs ´ 9 characters Written by two leading social and cultural historians the first edition of A Social History of the Media has become a classic textbook providing a masterful overview of communication media and of the social and cultural contexts within which they emerged and evolved over timeIn this new and revised edition Asa Briggs and Peter Burke have updated their classic study to cover the exciting media developments of the early 21st. This book probably deserves credit than I m giving 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 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 it gives a 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 middle ground and to keep a historical perspective This would probably be a useful book for undergrads It s undertheorized from a graduate student perspective however

review A Social History of the Media From Gutenberg to the Internet A Social History of the Media From Gutenberg to the Internet review è 9 Asa Briggs ´ 9 characters Associated with digital communication technology the rise of the internet and the phenomenon of 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 wide general readershi. Although I started reading this book for my minor I finished it because I can t let books be after I started them x The book is pretty organized and informative and definitely worth studying if you re in that field of studyPersonally I found it tough to get through because history is not my biggest interest and there are a lot of names in the media world of which I have very limited knowledge x I gave 4 stars because it was pleasant to read and of good uality It s not 5 stars because they didn t do proper research on the origins of print in Korea their timetable shows incorrect data for the invention if woodblock printing removable metal types and the oldest prints in Korea
