About the Author:

Jonathan Reed Winkler is Associate Professor of History at Wright State University.

Review:

This story involves not only the history of communication, but also diplomatic, military, technology, and business history. While investigating interrelated developments in these fields, Winkler recreates the global communication network in place at the outbreak of the war and shows how each side engaged in the first real information war. Finally, he analyzes US officials' reaction to this new warfare and the policies they adopted to redress this nation's shortcomings in the field of global communication. A well-researched, high readable work that makes a valuable contribution to a number of historical areas.--T. A. Aiello"Choice" (06/01/2009)

Winkler's book provides a lesson in the evolutionary nature of technological change. Winkler explores the first global internet--the international telegraph cable system that began shrinking Planet Earth at the end of the 19th century.--Austin Bay"austinbay.net" (08/10/2008)
