Buku ini luar biasa, karena Mattelart mampu menggambarkan bagaimana gerak sejarah peradaban dunia sejak revolusi industri digerakkan oleh perkembangan teknologi komunikasi.

Wajib hukumnya bagi semua yang berpikir tentang perubahan sosial umumnya, dan khususnya para praktisi propaganda politik membaca buku ini.
