A Nation Transformed by Information by Alfred D. Chandler Jr.+

A Nation Transformed by Information: How Information Has Shaped the United States from Colonial Times to the Present by Alfred D. Chandler Jr., James W. Cortada
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.6 Mb
Overview: This book makes the startling case that North Americans were getting on the "information highway" as early as the 1700’s, and have been using it as a critical building block of their social, economic, and political world ever since.
By the time of the founding of the United States, there was a postal system and roads for the distribution of mail copyright laws to protect intellectual property, and newspapers, books, and broadsides to bring information to a populace that was building a nation on the basis of an informed electorate. In the 19th century, Americans developed the telegraph, telephone, and motion pictures, inventions that further expanded the reach of information. In the 20th century they added television, computers, and the Internet, ultimately connecting themselves to a whole world of information.
From the beginning North Americans were willing to invest in the infrastructure to make such connectivity possible. This book explores what the deployment of these technologies says about American society. The editors assembled a group of contributors who are experts in their particular fields and worked with them to create a book that is fully integrated and cross-referenced.

Kuwait Transformed by Farah Al-Nakib

Kuwait Transformed: A History of Oil and Urban Life by Farah Al-Nakib
Requirements: .PDF reader, 2.8MB
Overview: As the first Gulf city to experience oil urbanization, Kuwait City’s transformation in the mid-twentieth century inaugurated a now-familiar regional narrative: a small traditional town of mudbrick courtyard houses and plentiful foot traffic transformed into a modern city with marble-fronted buildings, vast suburbs, and wide highways.

In Kuwait Transformed, Farah Al-Nakib connects the city’s past and present, from its settlement in 1716 to the twenty-first century, through the bridge of oil discovery. She traces the relationships between the urban landscape, patterns and practices of everyday life, and social behaviors and relations in Kuwait. The history that emerges reveals how decades of urban planning, suburbanization, and privatization have eroded an open, tolerant society and given rise to the insularity, xenophobia, and divisiveness that characterize Kuwaiti social relations today. The book makes a call for a restoration of the city that modern planning eliminated. But this is not simply a case of nostalgia for a lost landscape, lifestyle, or community. It is a claim for a "right to the city" the right of all inhabitants to shape and use the spaces of their city to meet their own needs and desires.
