Introduction: Communication, Government, Populations
The first chapter brings into focus the book’s agenda, which is to bring a populational perspective to media and communication. First, it sketches how different people are placed in relation to broadband technology, the small and large problems presented by broadband, the social relations within which people are variously positioned, and the consequences of broadband for the actual lives of populations. Second, the chapter sets out key working concepts used throughout the book: communication, communication technologies, government, populations, rhetoric, and history.
