Thomas Streissguth ©1997
Streissguth has compiled the entire time line of communications
history. After an introduction in which the author gives a brief overview
of communications technology through the ages, readers are introduced
to successive revolutions in human communications and their inventors,
from Gutenberg and the printing press to Edison and Marconi,
to the information superhighway. . . . Each chapter presents
an interesting, easy-to-understand, and authoritative biography of a major
figure (or figures) in this important field. . . . A welcome addition
to most collections.
Also includes Samuel Morse (telegraph), Alexander Graham Bell (telephone), Lee de Forest and Edwin Armstrong (radio), and Philo Farnsworth (television).
