The Myth of the Information Revolution: Social and Ethical Implications of Communication Technology edited by Michael Traber argued for "a genuine rather than a phony revolution, a communication revolution from below."
One of the first books to assess the impact of the concentration of the mass media in fewer and fewer hands, nine chapters include: "Is there life after the information revolution?" (Cees J. Hamelink); "The erosion of national sovereignty by the world business system" (Herbert I. Schiller); "Communication satellites and the Third World" (Donna A. Demac); "The social implications of technological innovations in communication" (James D. Halloran); "The struggle for rights and values in communication" (Paul A.V. Ansah); "Leapfrogging the industrial revolution" (Usha V. Reddi); "Communication as if people matter: The challenge of alternative communication" (Mina M. Ramirez); "Alternative communication for women's movements in Latin America" (Moema Viezzer); and "Communication and religion in the technological era" (William F. Fore).
