This readable and cogent book provides a much-needed overview of the information revolution in a global context. First tracing the historical evolution of communications since the development of the printing press, Elizabeth C. Hanson then explores the profound ways that new information and communication technologies are transforming international relations. Hanson considers the controversies over the present and future impact of a radically new information and communications environment as part of larger debates over globalization and the role of technology in historical change. Her carefully chosen case studies and judicious use of relevant research provide a firm basis for readers to evaluate competing arguments on this contentious issue.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The best textbook with a `big picture' of this subject so far. . . . The author has done an excellent job in conceptualizing such a broad and dynamic subject and organizing her treatises in an extremely readable style. . . . Betty Hanson is a very good writer, and her book is clearly written, simple in methodology, and contains interesting examples. * International Studies Review *
Elizabeth C. Hanson describes a sweeping panorama of globalizing communication and its impact on world politics. In her work, we see clearly how the global information cascade each day creates a new global reality before our eyes. -- Francis A. Beer, University of Colorado
I finally have a thorough, balanced, erudite introduction to the major issues in international communications for my foundations and principles course. Bravo! -- Eric J. Novotny, American University
This valuable and readable text provides a historically grounded and interdisciplinary discussion of media and technology. The author synthesizes knowledge that we who work in the field have been hoping to synthesize for some time. I especially appreciate the historical context, the strong inclusion of an international political economy approach to discuss the diffusion of technology in a way that balances the politics and political theory, and the explanations of the technology itself. -- Kenneth Rogerson, Duke University
Useful, concise-excellent for International Relations majors. -- Thomas Jande, American University
