"Wenzlhuemer's Connecting the Nineteenth-Century World is an important and useful book for historians of technology and capitalism. I wish it had been available when I wrote my own on the American telegraph industry."
David Hochfelder, ICON: Journal of the International Committee for the History of Technology
"... a well written and entertaining story about the technological development and the sociocultural impact of the actors and the structures of the telegraph in a globalising world in the second half of the nineteenth century."
Michael Mann, H-Soz-u-Kult
The global telegraph network brought distant people into direct communication by the end of the nineteenth century. Roland Wenzlhuemer examines the links between this technological advance and the paths of globalization, combining cultural studies with social science methodology to explore both the network's structure and the agency of its users.
