Pressestimmen

"This anthology will make a major contribution to the history of media by providing both new information and new models. In carefully prepared case studies-ranging from the employment of female telegraph operators to the use of sound recording to determine if apes had a language-this volume supplies new ideas about how media shape culture and how cultures shape media."--Tom Gunning, Chair, Committee on Cinema and Media, University of Chicago, and author of *The Cinema of Fritz Lang: Allegories of Vision and Modernity*Please note: Second sentence may be deleted for space reasons. Name of endorser's chair may be omitted, but affiliation should remain as is. Thank you. "In *Feedback*, David Joselit tackles the 800-pound gorilla of commercial television on both political and artistic grounds. Upsetting common dichotomies between artistic practice and commercial strategies, Joselit avoids either dismissing or embracing the commercial medium, offering a truly passionate critique that plunges into the intricacies of how the electronic image engages us, whether in our living room or a gallery floor. A bold work that seeks to generate argument and thought."--Tom Gunning, Chair, Committee on Cinema and Media, University of Chicago, and author of *The Cinema of Fritz Lang: Allegories of Vision and Modernity*
