Description: Praise for the 2nd edition: "This book doesn't plod along. Instead, like a good mystery novel, it hooks readers. Each chapter makes readers eager for the next as Fang brings history to life."--Sue Burzynski Bullard, Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly"Encompassing a vast amount of terrain and synthesizing a range of scholarly and popular sources, Fang's Alphabet to Internet will provide readers and instructors with a ready source of information on the historical development of media technologies."--Andrew Salvati, H-NetWhat Greek philosopher thought writing would harm a student's memory? Was the poet Byron's daughter the first computer programmer? Who plays more video games, women over 18 or teenage boys?In Alphabet to Internet: Media in Our Lives, Irving Fang looks at each medium of communication through the centuries, asking not only, "What happened?" but also, "How did society change because of this new communication medium?" and, "How are we different as a result?" Examining the impact of different media on a broad, historical scale--among them mass printing, the telegraph, film, the internet, and advertising--Alphabet to Internet takes us from the first scratches of writing and the origins of mail to today's video games, the widespread and daily use of smartphones, and the impact of social media in political uprisings across the globe. A timeline at the end of each chapter places events in perspective and allows students to pinpoint key moments in media history.Now in its third edition, Alphabet to Internet presents a lively, thoughtful, and accessible introduction to media history.
