ABSTRACT
The book is a classic text from the American school of communication. It was republished in 2009 by Routledge on the occasion of the author's death. This new edition includes a critical foreword by G. Stuart Adam that explains Carey's fundamental role in the establishment of the communication studies in America, particularly against the American tradition of focusing only on mass communication's function as a means of social and political control. Carey sustains that communication is not merely the transmission of information; reminding the reader of the link between the words communication and community. The collection of essays presented in this volume furnishes an important debate on the concept of communication, which at times favors the transmission of signs, at times favors the sharing of common experiences.
