Communication in Ancient Times. Communication continued to improve in the 20th century. In 1901 Marconi sent a radio message across the Atlantic. The first means of communication was, of course, the human voice but about 3,200 BC writing was invented in Iraq and Egypt. It was invented about 1,500 BC in China. The Chinese invented printing with blocks in the 6th century AD but the first known printed book was the Diamond Sutra of 686. In Europe in the mid-15th century Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press, which made books much cheaper and allowed newspapers to be invented.

The electromechanical vibrator originated in the late nineteenth century as a device for medical therapy. In the first three decades of the twentieth century, however, marketing of vibrators as consumer appliances became pervasive. Ads appeared in the pages of The New York Times and Scientific American and plastered street cars. Companies marketed vibrators to grandparents, mothers, infants, and young adults. Vibrators are widely sold today, however, as instruments for masturbation, a use that was rarely mentioned but well known before World War II.

20th TWENTIETH CENTURY FICTION Discusses about 20th century fiction and its influence on society, political and intellectual environment. Twentieth century fiction. Fred B. Millet, in his book Contemporary British Literature, states that the physical environment in which the men of letter and artists live conditions their production in the most intimate and elusive of ways. In this respect the twentieth century novelists are of no exception

This series attempts to cover a wide variety of subjects and to follow their progression and development during the 20th century. This illustrated volume provides an overview of the developments in communications throughout this century. It describes the invention of the electric telegraph in the middle of the 19th century, which made rapid communications possible, and the increasing impact of telephone and radio communications as the networks spread during the 1920s. Marconi's pioneering method of flying blind in an aeroplane by following a radio beam is noted and the developments in television during the 1920s in various countries are examined, with 18 experimental television stations established in the USA by the end of 1928. During the 1930s the modern telegraph systems, telex and TWX were introduced and uses of radio waves were being investigated. By the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939, Britain had a chain of radar stations along the south coast. Developments after the war included electronic colour television, a transatlantic telephone cable and the invention of the transistor. The silicon chip and new technology led to electronic telephone exchanges, hi-fi systems and video recorders and the development of satellites made world communications a reality. Finally the author considers the 1970s and 1980s, discussing how the development of smaller computer systems has helped to create a revolution in communications so that information cannot only be transmitted instantly, but processed almost instantly as well. The author has also written several books in Wayland's "Tomorrow's World" series.
