The book provides a consolidated focus on populations, government and media. In highlighting the focus on population and government to make a case for the generativity of this approach to communication media. It outlines a case for taking note of the connections, often unlikely, between communication media practices and the ways in which the dispositions, capacities and activities of various populations are formed, shaped and regulated. It describes such connections as they exist now but also in different times and places, revisiting earlier histories of print, of broadcast, of telegraphic and other media. Underpinning the book are some central categories which bring a fresh perspective to some familiar histories. However the objective is not to theorise communication and media (or what we see as inseparable ‘communication media’) but to provide a wide variety of examples, both contemporary and from earlier times, and from a range of countries, of the connections between communication media practices and the formative governing of specific populations.  In doing this, the book aims to empirically demonstrate the value of considering communication in terms of the government of populations.
