Editorial Reviews

Review

It's been said that without Harold A. Innis there could have been no Marshall McLuhan. Empire and Communications is one of Innis's most important contributions to the debate about how media influence the development of consciousness and societies. In this seminal text, he traces humanity's movement from the oral tradition of preliterate cultures to the electronic media of recent times. Along the way, he presents his own influential concepts of oral communication, time and space bias, and monopolies of knowledge.

From the Inside Flap

Format: Paperback
This book provides a wonderful examination of how emerging communication technologies impact the society that spawned them. Each major media advance (papyrus, parchment, paper, the printing press) causes major shifts in the social paradigms of the societies that adopt its use... definately worth the read. This edition has an afterword by Dr. David Godfrey regarding the impact of the electronic form.

This is a book I ordered from a masters degree class and it was a difficult read in the beginning, but it got more interesting and relavent towards the middle and at the end was easier to read. I think the author is very knowledgable but the over-scholarly writing was not easy to comprehend, but that is what professors want for a textbook.

Format: Paperback
Brilliant book, a tough read but worth the effort. Stunningly prophetic about how media companies still don't get digital media and want to control information. Buy it, read it, ask (nicely at first) for a digital version to honor his life's work.

Brilliant and almost insane research scholarship brought into a couple hundred pages of clear prose. A book of critical importance.
