In this book, author examines the political history of
telecommunications from the mid-nineteenth century to the
end of World War II. He argues that this technology gave
society new options. In times of peace, the telegraph and
radio were, as many predicted, instruments of peace, in
times of tension, they became instruments of politics,
tools for rival interests, and weapons of war. Writing in
a lively, accessible style, author illuminates the
political aspects of information technology, showing how
in both World Wars, the use of radio led to a shadowy war
of disinformation, cryptography, and communications
intelligence, with decisive consequences.
