about this item

The Geopolitics of Communication provides a unique examination of communication that offers an important alternative perspective through its emphasis on the material history and the material geography of communication. Three extended case studies bring focus to these complex theoretical and conceptual issues.
  • Offers an alternative history of communication in a global age by carefully drawing unimagined/forgotten connections between history and geography, temporality and spatiality, and mobility and transport
  • Draws together the North American and European traditions of materialist communications studies, along with perspectives from cultural geography and anthropology
  • Includes extended case studies of three of the most significant icons of our era - the mobile phone, the migrant and the container box
  • The volume moves across time periods and geographies real and virtual, conjuring a broad range of examples taken from a variety of disciplines and domains
