Revolution in the Echo Chamber is a sociohistorical analysis of British and US radio and audio drama from 1919 to the present day. This volume examines the aesthetic, cultural and technical elements of audio drama along with its context within the literary canon. In addition to the form and development of aural drama, Leslie Grace McMurtry provides an exploration of mental imagery generation in relation to its reception and production. Building on historical analysis, Revolution in the Echo Chamber provides contemporary perspective, drawing on trends from the current audio drama environment to analyse how people listen to audio drama, including podcast drama, today – and how they might listen in the future.

An evocative and exquisitely written debut novel about family, empire and money. Impressive in its scope and ambition, this first novel is at once a family saga, a book that reimagines the myth of the empire, and a history of objects. The Echo Chamber is narrated by fifty-four- year-old Evie Steppman, who grew up in Nigeria in the 1950s during the last decade of British rule. As a child, Evie exhibited extraordinarily acute powers of hearing; now, alone in an attic in Scotland that is filled with objects from her past and with her powers of hearing starting to fade, she sets out to record her history before it all disintegrates into a meaningless din. Tales of the twelfth-century mapmaker in Palermo, stories whispered by embittered expatriates, and eyewitness accounts from Nigeria's civil war mingle with Evie's memories of her childhood, of her grandfather, a watchmaker who attempted to forge a mechanical likeness of his dead wife, and of her travels across America. Williams's interest in history and storytelling and his talent for evoking multiple voices will remind readers of the work of David Mitchell, Peter Carey, and Jonathan Safran Foer.

This companion volume to The Information Revolution and National Security (CSIS, 1996) brings together a diverse set of thinkers from the policy analysis, military, government, and academic communities to consider the implications of the information revolution for international security. The discussion includes military affairs, but also considers the global social, economic, and political changes occurring because of the information revolution and their potential effects on the international security environment - for example, the impact of global information networks on national economies and of new information technologies on diplomacy and governance. This provocative, informed exploration is written for policymakers, legislators, and others seeking an overview of key global security issues accompanying this technology revolution.

This book is a study of the weaving and unweaving of particular subject positions within James Joyce's major works - Dubliners, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young man, Ulysses, and Finnegans Wake - through representations of voice, which negotiates identity, authority, and subjectivity. The voice, in the narrowest sense, reveals itself as a portion of the narrative which in turn stands as part of the discourse of a particular work. This work explores the different ways that Joyce portrays and negotiates identity through voice and the conceptualization of boundaries that exist in between different and distinct subjectivities, which are explored by the author of this work from within the conceptualization and representation of voice.
