Revolutions in Communication, 2nd edition 

“A clear benefit of the second edition Revolutions in Communication is its focus on recent technological revolutions in media. As I tell my undergraduate media history students on the first day, the one constant in professional journalism and related fields is technological change. Seeing how people in the past have dealt with change, as outlined in Kovarik's book, offers a way of keeping history relevant while grappling with shifts in media technologies.” –  Jane Marcellus, Middle Tennessee State University, USA
