Description

Chosen by The Globe and Mail as "Required Reading for 1997," and now revised and updated in a new trade paperback edition, Spirit of the Web tells the story of the evolution of the ways we communicate and provides fascinating and important perspective in understanding the roots of the modern electronic revolution. Popular history at its very best, this lively and optimistic book shows how the wiring of our planet for the last 150 years has led to the Global Village we now inhabit. Ultimately, it points to the extraordinary promise of the Internet as a truly democratic means of communication.
