Toward a History of the Rank and File

Edited by Hanno Hardt & Bonnie Brennen
University of Minnesota Press

Focusing on the period from the 1850s through the 1930s, the contributors show how issues of labor and class have been far more important in the formation of media institutions than previous accounts concede. These essays recover the history of ethnic and cultural diversity-including the contributions of women-that have enriched the process of communication.
