Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
An amazing story about Canada at its beginnings. The first telegraph line was inaugurated in 1846, the first telephone line in 1874 and in both cases communications technology was intertwined with the building of the nation. Canadians always believed that strong east-west communication infrastructures would compensate for the south-north pull exerted by the US power. Canadian telecommunications were developped according this ulterior motive... with the ongoing benevolence of AT&T. Reading "The Invisible Empire" is a must to understand Canadian protectionism in the telecommunications industry.
