MEDIA REVIEWS
This book represents an independent view about the evolution of Telefonica from its origins as an ITT subsidiary before World War II since its conversion into a large Spanish multinational in recent decades. Its all-encompassing perspective makes the booka required reading for those who are interested in how this company became a major player in current Latin American communication marketssss -- Jacint Jordana, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona
This brief monograph provides a timely assessment of the Spanish telecommunications company Telefonica....The book is important, for helping to address the relative dearth of English-language communications material on Central and South America....This monograph is also valuable thanks in part to the author's ready ability to use Spanish-language documents and source material that are often little known to scholars restricted to English-language archives. But it also underlines the pace of organizational as well as technical change in Latin telecommunication networks. * Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) *
This book provides an enormous service for scholars of global communication by filling a gap in our understanding of Telefonica, one of the world's major media conglomerates. Drawing on a wealth of sources, Martinez deftly charts the company's rise from a regional telecommunications firm to a global giant spanning all forms of old and new media. In doing so, she joins a new wave of scholarship that demonstrates the growing power of Spanish-language media in the world today. -- Vincent Mosco, Canada Research Chair in Communication and Society, Queen's University
