Alphabet to Internet: Media in Our Lives looks at each medium of communication through the centuries not only to ask What happened? but also How did society change because this entered our lives? and How are we different? It also recognizes that not every change is something that we desire. Each new communication medium has had particular and significant effects on cultures and on individuals. Examining the impact of media, Alphabet to Internet: Media in Our Lives takes us from the beginnings of writing to today's video games and the use of cell phones and social media in political disturbances at home and in nations across the globe. A timeline at the end of each chapter places events in a chronological perspective. 102 photos and illustrations, index, bibliography
