The Second Information Revolution is important reading for anyone who needs to understand the functioning of American telecommunications, either to be able to analyse today’s financial markets or to understand or influence public policy in this area.—Wendy M. Grossman, The Times Higher Education Supplement

Brock traces a phenomenon he refers to as the ‘second information revolution.’ According to Brock, there have been two times in history when information technology has dramatically changed daily life. The first ‘information revolution’ occurred with the advent of the telephone and telegraph, which made communication less expensive and more readily available. The second information revolution is currently in progress… A concise, thorough, and well-written history of the transformation in exchanging and processing of information.—K. A. Coombs, Choice
