Community and Communications.
Mandelbaum, Seymour J.
An argument is posited for dealing with urban dilemmas through the perspective of interpersonal communications. In response to the contemporary revolution in communications technology, the concept of the community is redefined to encompass all the people with whom an individual communicates, regardless of geographic location. Social and political issues are examined in the context of involved parties talking effectively to each other about salient issues. More efficiently organized channels of communication are required. More information must be disseminated to people for storage and retrieval, and they in turn must be provided with avenues of expression. The book discusses the technological possibility of a total communications system for America as a means of coping with pressing social issues. (EE)
