7 BRITTON, JOHN A. Cables, Crisis, And The Press: The Geopolitics Of The New Information System In The Americas, 1866-1903.
University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque: 2013. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
In recent decades the Internet has played what may seem to be a unique role in international crises. This book reveals an interesting parallel in the late nineteenth century, when a new communications system based on advances in submarine cable technology and newspaper printing brought information to an excitable mass audience. A network of insulated copper wires connecting North America, the Caribbean, South America, and Europe delivered telegraphed news to front pages with unprecedented speed. Britton surveys the technological innovations and business operations of newspapers in the United States, the building of the international cable network, and the initial enthusiasm for these electronic means of communication to resolve international conflicts. Focusing on United States rivalries with European nations in Latin America, he examines the Spanish American War, in which war correspondents like Richard Harding Davis fed accounts of Spanish atrocities and Cuban heroism into the American press, creating pressure on diplomats and government leaders in the United States and Spain. The new information system also played important roles in the U.S.-British confrontation in the Venezuelan boundary dispute, the building of the Panama Canal, and the establishment of the U.S. empire in the Caribbean and the Pacific. John A. Britton has taught courses in Latin American, United States, and world history at Francis Marion University since 1972.

10 BURKE, PETER. The Art Of Conversation.

Offers the first social history of language in early modern Europe as a whole. How to deliver an insult or show respect, how to tell a joke, how to ask for a drink - conventions of language are complex, ever-changing, and often implicit. Yet language is an inseparable part of social history, Burke maintains; without an awareness of linguistic conventions and variations, it is impossible even to know whether a text is serious or ironic, whether it follows the rules or subverts them. Includes an Index.

16 HASINOFF, AMY ADELE. Sexting Panic: Rethinking Criminalization, Privacy, And Consent.
University of Illinois Press, Urbana and Chicago: 2015. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Sexting Panic Rethinking Criminalization, Privacy, and Consent Finding reasonable solutions to the fear and frenzy surrounding digital social interactions Sexting Panic illustrates how anxieties about technology and teen girls' sexuality distract from critical questions about how to adapt norms of privacy and consent for new media. Though mobile phones can be used to cause harm, Amy Adele Hasinoff notes that criminalization and abstinence policies meant to curb sexting often fail to account for the distinction between consensual sharing and the malicious distribution of a private image. Hasinoff challenges the idea that sexting inevitably victimizes young women. Instead, she encourages us to recognize young people's capacity for choice and recommends responses to sexting that are realistic and nuanced rather than based on misplaced fears about deviance, sexuality, and digital media. Amy Adele Hasinoff is an assistant professor of communication at the University of Colorado Denver. "Sexting has brought together two things that adults fear most--teens' sexuality and technology. Sexting Panic is a fantastic antidote to the media-driven moral panic. . . . Hasinoff's thoughtful book offers a framework for rethinking sexual media production and the politics of consent. This is a critical intervention to a fraught topic."--danah boyd, author of It's Complicated: The Social Lives of Networked Teens "The most comprehensive analysis of sexting so far. Amy Hasinoff gives us nuanced insights into young people's practices of sexting with a much-needed emphasis on consent and agency. This book challenges the orthodox anxieties about technology and female sexuality, while provoking us to rethink ideas of media production and information."--Kate Crawford, author of Adult Themes: Rewriting the Rules of Adulthood "Talk about sexting has become a key site for making sense of young people's relationships with sex and technology, but it is often hampered by common-sense and frequently sexist views of girls. This book, which is clear, compassionate, and practical, argues that in order to move forward in our understanding of sexting we need to see it as an act of media production and to refocus adults' concerns about girls onto girls' rights to privacy and to a culture of consent. Amy Hasinoff's book is a major contribution to debates about sexting, sexualization, and contemporary sexual and media cultures."--Feona Attwood, editor of Mainstreaming Sex: The Sexualization of Western Culture "Hasinoff has written a bold and provocative book that complicates prevailing assumptions that sexting is an inherently damaging practice for young women. Deftly integrating scholarship regarding adolescent female sexuality and digital media practices, Hasinoff challenges the reader to move beyond a simplistic understanding of female victimhood to embrace a more robust understanding of sexting as a potential expression of authentic desire and agency."--J. Shoshanna Ehrlich, author of Who Decides? The Abortion Rights of Teens "Moving away from the dominance of media, legal, and educational focuses upon sexting, Hasinoff . . . covers a lot of necessary ground and brings a complex reading to sexting that the topic deserves."--Larissa Hjorth, author of Mobile Media in the Asia-Pacific: Gender and the Art of Being Mobile

18 JOHN, RICHARD R. Network Nation: Inventing American Telecommunications.
Belknap Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2015. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The telegraph and the telephone were the first electrical communications networks to become hallmarks of modernity. Yet they were not initially expected to achieve universal accessibility. In this pioneering history of their evolution, Richard R. John demonstrates how access to these networks was determined not only by technological imperatives and economic incentives but also by political decision making at the federal, state, and municipal levels. In the decades between the Civil War and the First World War, Western Union and the Bell System emerged as the dominant providers for the telegraph and telephone. Both operated networks that were products not only of technology and economics but also of a distinctive political economy. Western Union arose in an antimonopolistic political economy that glorified equal rights and vilified special privilege. The Bell System flourished in a progressive political economy that idealized public utility and disparaged unnecessary waste. The popularization of the telegraph and the telephone was opposed by business lobbies that were intent on perpetuating specialty services. In fact, it wasn't until 1900 that the civic ideal of mass access trumped the elitist ideal of exclusivity in shaping the commercialization of the telephone. The telegraph did not become widely accessible until 1910, sixty-five years after the first fee-for-service telegraph line opened in 1845. Network Nation places the history of telecommunications within the broader context of American politics, business, and discourse. This engrossing and provocative book persuades us of the critical role of political economy in the development of new technologies and their implementation. Richard R. John is Professor of History at Columbia University. "Could it be that Americans actually like communications monopolists? Do we want dominant firms to run our world? Richard R. John's splendid book helps to answer that question by telling us just where this American affection for info-monopoly came from. John has produced a detailed study of the grand-daddies of it all: AT&T and Western Union, the first great info-monopolists, whose role in communications history is similar to that of the Allosaurus and the T. rex in the history of the animal kingdom. A work of careful history based on archival research, Network Nation begins with Samuel Morse's construction of the first electric telegraph line in 1844 and concludes with the establishment of AT&T (or Bell, a term that can be used interchangeably with AT&T) as America's regulated telephone monopoly… What Network Nation does deliver is a nuanced answer to the basic question, why monopoly?"—Tim Wu, The New Republic "This is a richly detailed and readable book that fills an important gap in the history of communication networks. It definitively debunks palaver about mass communications as an autonomous agent of change, emphasizing how Americans constructed the telegraph and the telephone through a political process of continual negotiation and redefinition."—David E. Nye, American Historical Review "[An] exceptional new history of American communications technologies from 1840 to 1920."—Steven W. Usselman, Business History Review "This is a valuable book on the technological and economic trends that impacted the popularization of the telephone, one of the most profoundly significant inventions in the record of humanity. To understand the history of American telecommunications is to attend to the political economies at the time technological innovation occurred. John brilliantly articulates this context. Shifting municipal and federal sensibilities always shaped the diffusion of technologies, even in times where strong federal governmental oversight did not yet exist. The threat of federal and municipal government ownership of telecommunication systems was real, as seen in the case of the Bell system (and its failure)."—Jim Hahn, Library Journal "In a compact, learned-yet-lucid, and deeply informed book spanning roughly eight decades, Richard R. John provides an engrossing history of the emergence of telecommunication networks in the United States."—David A. Hounshell, Carnegie Mellon University "Network Nation is an extraordinary feat of scholarly imagination. Richard John's sweeping history of the telecommunications industry reveals as much about the development of the American state and of the culture of technology as about the rise of a troubled monopoly. Like Alfred Chandler's The Visible Hand, it is one of few institutional studies that anyone with a serious interest in U.S. history should read."—Michael Kazin, author of A Godly Hero: The Life of William Jennings Bryan "The innovators who built America's telecommunication networks created more than new devices. With elegant prose and exhaustive research, Richard R. John's eagerly awaited masterwork shows how business and governmental institutions shaped the first century of the telegraph and the telephone."—Pamela Walker Laird, author of Pull: Networking and Success since Benjamin Franklin "A foundational business history that will be an essential component of what well-educated Americans need to know about their society."—Richard White, Stanford University
