Details

Discover the behind-the-scenes stories of the inventors and inventions that primed the world for our current communications, media, and information explosion. Communications and Broadcasting, Revised Edition sets the scene with a look at the development and interconnection of scientific ideas: electromagnetism, leading to the telegraph and telephone; Maxwell's wave theory, leading to radio and television; and communications and information theory, from Claude Shannon to the World Wide Web and beyond. In addition, there are engaging portraits of the inventors themselves—visionaries who were part scientist, part engineer, and part entrepreneur. Students will find out how they made modern communications possible, and how they repeatedly recast its media.
