?Until now, there has not been a teachable history of mass media. Cullen?s deftly distilled historiographies will please teachers and the well-chosen genre essays and case studies will inspire great classroom discussions.? --Andrew Haley, The University of Southern Mississippi ?With its informative overviews and rich document studies, A Short History of the Modern Media should prove an essential work for any course on the history and meaning of modern media.? --Louis P. Masur, Rutgers University "An excellent introduction to the technologies, industries, cultural forms, and genres that constitute our media landscape. Cullen shows that the history of our media is in many ways the history of our sociality and our intimacies." --Matthew Frye Jacobson, Yale University
