Empire and Communications

It's been said that without Harold A. Innis there could have been no Marshall McLuhan. Empire and Communications is one of Innis's most important contributions to the debate about how media influence the development of consciousness and societies. In this seminal text, he traces humanity's movement from the oral tradition of preliterate cultures to the electronic media of recent times. Along the way, he presents his own influential concepts of oral communication, time and space bias, and monopolies of knowledge.

  • "Il ruolo decisivo dei mezzi di comunicazione nella storia dell'Occidente: è questo il tema di "Imperi e comunicazioni". Agendo sulle dimensioni fondamentali dello spazio e del tempo, i mezzi di comunicazione determinano il destino e la stabilità delle istituzioni. E nessuna istituzione ha caratterizzato l'Occidente come l'Impero, forma politica in cui Innis insegue le trasformazioni della società egizia a quella mesopotamica, dalla Grecia classica a Roma, dal Medioevo alla dominazione coloniale moderna. Le sorti degli imperi, in tutte le epoche si rivelano così strettamente dipendenti dall'egemonia dei media che favoriscono il potere delle classi religiose e la continuità delle istituzioni."

  • ""An internationally renowned scholar and political economist, Innis was the forefather of the 'global village' concept popularized by Marshall McLuhan in the 1960s. Innis' life-time of research resulted in this seminal work which examines the evolution of communications media from stone tablets to printing presses, and the direct impact of various media on the duration and prosperity of the empires of Egypt, Rome, Greece, Babylon, Europe, and America. In this revised edition, David Godfrey brings Innis' classic study of communications theory into the 1980s. Applying Innis' examinations of civilization and technology to the present, he helps us understand today's explosion of electronic media in Canada and the world"--Back cover."@en
