'Historians are showing that the globalization of information is not a unique historical feature of the contemporary era, but a recurrent construction possessing many facets and unsuspected properties - including a longstanding utopian element. The contributors to this fine collection unearth a revealing series of cultural, intellectual, and technological projects to universalize information systems during the decades before World War I and, in the process, give us new ways of understanding the lineages of our own time.' Dan Schiller, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA 'There is so much in this book - the complexity and range of ideas discussed here is remarkable, and it is all tremendously engaging.'
