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.
