Empire and Communications book. However, in the introduction of Empire and Communications, Alexander John Watson calls the book and Innis’ findings nothing less than prophetic. Even though he was denounced as a serious scholar because of his commoner background and, what his contemporary colleagues thought to be, a mediocre knowledge of economy and history, Innis’ study of communications of antiquity has laid the foundations for the work of such communication star-scholars as Marshall McLuhan.

Comments to eBook Empire and Communications (Voyageur Classics)
Painwind
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.
Getaianne
Brilliant and almost insane research scholarship brought into a couple hundred pages of clear prose. A book of critical importance.
Qusserel
excelent condition
Jusari
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.
Shakar
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.
