Summary "Boxton, Cheney, and Heyer knit the chapters into a cohesive narrative and help readers navigate Inn's observations by summarizing the heavily detailed factual materials that peppered the unpubllished manuscript. They provide further context for Inni's arguments by adding annotations, references, and pertinent citations to his other writings. The end result is both a testament to Inni's status as a canonical figure in the study of communication and a surprisingly relevant contribution to how we might think about the current sea change in all aspects of social, cultural, political, and economic life stemming from the global shift to digital communication."
