From the start of writing things down, mediated communication has nudged our world onward, again and again. It has changed the way we choose to live.Beginning with the evolution of writing and the alphabet from Sumer to Greece, Alphabet to Internet traces in a brisk and lively style the development and the impact of printing, still and motion photography, mail service, the telegraph, the telephone, recording, broadcasting, the Internet, and the digital revolution. An additional chapter reflects on the role of communication in current international political struggles. Another chapter is devoted to the cultural influence of video games. A supplementary section, ?A Timeline of Communication and Culture,? contains more than 5,000 entries. It is the most complete and up-to-date of its subject matter in existence.
