The task of this book is to reconstruct the genealogy of the sphere of world communication. We will follow a multidimensional approach, analyzing the ways in which technologies and networks have taken root since the nineteenth century and have ceaselessly pushed back to light the concepts, doctrines, theories, and controversies that have marked the construction of the scientific field known as international communications.
