Abstract

The International Encyclopaedia of the Information Age surveys the current field of mass communications as it has been overtaken and transformed by the technological revolution. From the telegraph to the Internet, this unique reference will span print, photographic, electrical and electronic communication systems, international and national institutional forms, the structure of content, the history of technological and cultural development and the biographies of the people concerned with them currently and in the past.

Chronicling two hundred years of technological development, The Encyclopaedia of the Information Age will cover all the major media––advertising, books, cinema, print, theatre, radio, television, new media, public relations and the recording industry. Major personalities––inventors, stars, moguls and media empires––will also be treated in the reference, along with important themes past and present, including technology, the studio system, advertising, stars, regulation, journalism as a profession, networks, globalisation, communication and film theory. The media structures of individual nations––in the anglophone sphere but well beyond, will round out the volume, providing a truly coherent overview of global communications in an age of convergence.
