Summary "By focusing on the ways in which communication has been experienced, thought of, and argued about over time by the Australian people, Communication Traditions in Australia: Packaging the People addresses the following question: is it possible to speak of the evolution of Australian communication traditions?" "In this new text, the authors draw on a selection of surviving artefacts of communication history, as well as a range of secondary sources, to take the story of communication back to the pre-federation years of the 1890s and to provide in-depth coverage of contemporary Australia. Using political economy, social history, and cultural theory, this book critically analyses the history of Australian thinking about communication and places it in a global setting."--BOOK JACKET
