The information society : an introduction by Armand Mattelart( Book )

41 editions published between 2001 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this short introduction, Armand Mattelart unpacks the notion of the information society, and examines why it has become the dominant paradigm for social change in the 21st Century. Critically, he also asks why the notion has come to dominate in the absence of any critical examination of the conditions under which it has been produced. Combining a long-term historical and geopolitical perspective, Mattelart questions the axioms used to legitimate the Information Society and critically assesses the ways in which it has been conceptualised as a theoretical concept as well as policy making tool

Mapping world communication : war, progress, culture by Armand Mattelart( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Together, the media and the military have turned the twentieth century into a spectacular but deadly show. How precisely this has happened, how it works and why, is the subject of this book by one of the world's foremost media theorists. With the trenchant wit and keen insight that have earned him international acclaim, Armand Mattelart offers a history of modern communications that exposes the connection between militarism and the evolution of the media industry, while questioning the notion that technological innovation is always synonymous with progress. The history of modern media emerges in this account largely as a history of state control, wielded to discipline internal populations and combat external enemies. With dazzling detail, Mattelart moves from the rise of the postal stamp to international telegraphy to the world press, and finds in each the hand of state strategy. In his analysis of the Gulf War, we see how the media can go beyond ideological service to become a tactical weapon. But Mattelart doesn't stop there. Beyond war and geopolitics, he examines the role of intensified economic competition in the forging of new international networks of information and communication, raising the fateful question of whether the emergence of these networks will lead to a uniform "world culture" or rather to greater fragmentation of the planet

Introduction aux Cultural studies by Armand Mattelart( Book )

24 editions published between 2003 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Que recouvre le concept de « matérialisme culturel » ? Comment le milieu social, l'âge, le genre, l'identité « ethnique » affectent-ils les rapports à la culture ? Dans une « audience » médiatique, tous les participants perçoivent-ils les mêmes messages ou significations ?Ce sont là des questions vives que, de façon précoce, les Cultural Studies ont entrepris d'analyser dans l'Angleterre des années 1960. En accordant à la culture des médias et des classes populaires une attention jusque-là réservée à la culture des lettrés, elles invitaient à penser le culturel dans son rapport aux dynamiques de pouvoir.

The globalization of surveillance : the origin of the securitarian order by Armand Mattelart( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Video surveillance, public records, fingerprints, hidden microphones, RFID chips: in contemporary societies the intrusive techniques of surveillance used in daily life have increased dramatically. The "war against terror" has only exacerbated this trend, creating a world that is closer than one might have imagined to that envisaged by George Orwell in 1984. How have we reached this situation? Why have democratic societies accepted that their rights and freedoms should be taken away, a little at a time, by increasingly sophisticated mechanisms of surveillance? From the anthropometry of the 19th Century to the Patriot Act, through an analysis of military theory and the Echelon Project, Armand Mattelart constructs a genealogy of this new power of control and examines its globalising dynamic. This book provides an essential wake-up call at a time when democratic societies are becoming less and less vigilant against the dangers of proliferating systems of surveillance. -- Back cover
