              Connected: A Brief History of Global Telecommunications (EPUB ebook)

              By Knott-Craig, Alan; Tysoe, John

              'Mr Watson, come here, I want to see you.'It's been almost 150 years since Alexander Graham Bell said these immortal words on the first ever phone call, to his assistant in the next room. Between 10 March 1876 and now, the world has changed beyond recognition. And telecommunicati...ons, which has played a fundamental role in this change, has itself evolved into an industry that was the sole preserve of science fiction.When the world's first modern mobile telephone network was launched in 1979, there were just over 300 million telephones. Today, there are more than eight billion, most of which are mobile. Most people in most countries can now contact each other in a matter of seconds. Soon we'll all be connected, to each other, and to complex computer networks that provide us with instant information, but also observe and record our actions. No other phenomenon touches so many of us, so directly, each and every day of our lives.A concise edition of John Tysoe and Alan Knott-Craig's magnum opus, A History of Telecommunications, this book gives you the information you need to know about what keeps us connected and how we got here.

              On Guard Against the Red Menace: Anti-Communism in Brazil, 1917-1964
               

              On Guard Against the Red Menace: Anti-Communism in Brazil, 1917-1964 (PDF ebook)

              By Sa Motta, Rodrigo

              This book focuses on the values, beliefs, fears and actions of Brazilian groups that throughout the twentieth century fought the "red menace". It is based on broad and diversified documentary sources, including police files, archives of political leaders, traditional press period...icals, newspapers and brochures of right-wing organizations, monuments, caricatures, and photographs. The work is a major contribution to better understanding the political impact of right-wing movements in Brazil and the justifications made for the authoritarian coups of 1937 and 1964. The author explains the intricacy of the political movements, leaderships and organizations that gathered around the fight against communism, as well as the ideas and images used to disseminate their arguments, including international sources of inspiration. The argument presented is not one of mere condemnation, but as dictatorship has reared its head post 1964 an assessment is long overdue in order to understand the political impact of anti-communist movements which have contributed to enable the longstanding police-military repressive machine of the Brazilian State. The current return of anti-communism to the Brazilian political scene is evidence of the book's thesis that this phenomenon took root in Brazilian society during the first decades of the twentieth century. On Guard Against the Red Menace helps to understand why a candidate of military origin who promises to rid the country of the reds won the October 2018 elections in Brazil, by adopting a discursive strategy that represents the appropriation of the anti-communist tradition analyzed in this book.
