The European Information Society : A Reality Check Paperback / softback
Edited by Jan Servaes
The globalization of social, cultural and economic relations is facilitated, and at the same time conditioned by developments in the information and communications technologies (ICT) and infrastructure.
Human knowledge brought mankind from an oral to a literate culture, thanks to the invention of print media.
The development of the electronic media in the 20th century paved the way for the information age, in which spatial and temporal constraints are lifted.
This work explores the consequences of this revolution in human communications, which are multidimensional in character, affecting economical, political and social life on national, international and local levels.
The text is part of a series of volumes arising from the intellectual work of ECCR members.
