The International History of Communication Study pushes the history of communication study in new directions by taking an aggressively international and comparative perspective on the historiography of the field. This book is intended for professors and graduate students in communication, media studies, and journalism and taps into the established and steadily increasing interest in the history of those fields.

This volume reaches into national and regional areas that have not previously held a lot of attention in the scholarship up until now, expanding beyond the borders of the United States, Canada, Germany, and the United Kingdom. It also covers communication study outside of academic settings, including international organizations like UNESCO and among religious and civic groups. It moves beyond the traditional canon to cover work by forgotten figures, including women scholars in the field and those outside of the United States and Europe.

The book is organized into sections, each with a brief preface that provides orientation for readers. Included under the coverage of this volume are Eastern Europe, North America, Asia, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East. Methodologically and conceptually, the volume breaks new ground in bringing comparative, transnational, and global frames to bear and puts under the spotlight what has heretofore only lingered in the penumbra of the history of communication study.
