About this product
- DescriptionThe establishment of a worldwide network of landline and submarine cable connections in the mid-nineteenth century fostered the emergence of new structures and patterns of interaction on a global scale. World politics and a global ecomy only became possible with the creation of global communication electric. This book examines the emergence of this global media system between 1860 and 1930 in four sections- Inter|Nationalisms, Agents|Actors, Use|News, and Space|Time - that aim to broaden and challenge popular conceptions of telegraphy. In exploring the varied uses of telegraphy, real or imagined, Global Communication Electric expands the tion of the telegraph as a globalizing medium: of connection as well as friction; of political, social, and ecomic entanglement as well as disentanglement; and of crossing as well as creating distance in space and time.
