From the invention of the telegraph to the emergence of the Internet, communications technologies have transformed the ways that people and places relate to each other.Geographies of Media and Communication is the first textbook to treat all aspects of geography s variegated encounter with communication.

Connecting geographical ideas with communication theories such as intertextuality, audience–centered theory, and semiotics, Paul C. Adams explores media representations of places, the spatial diffusion of communication technologies, and the power of communication technologies to transform places, and to dictate who does and does not belong in them.

In presenting a humbler concept, a process rather than an object (p. 9) Adams book not only seems certain to be
widely read beyond an undergraduate audience, but may be more likely to develop genuinely shared connections across such a broad spectrum of scholarship.   (Tijdschrift voor Economische en Sociale Geografie, 1 January 2013)
