History of Telecommunications Technology: An Annotated Bibliography by Christopher H. Sterling and George Shiers is due from Scarecrow Press ( Lanham, MD) in early 2000. A substantially updated and revised and reorganized edition of Shiers’s Bibliography of the History of Electronics (Scarecrow, 1972), it focuses on telecommunications and adds many new subject areas. About 1,500 entries cover general reference works, serial publications, general surveys, institutional and company history, biographies of inventors and engineers, telegraphy, telephony, electromagnetic waves, radio, electroacoustics and recording, electron tubes and solid state devices, television, newer media technologies, transmission (mobile, satellite, and fiber optics, and the Internet), and Internet resources.
Shiers (1908-1983) was a California-based technical freelance author with several books and a host of telecommunications technology history articles to his credit. Sterling is a member of the George Washington University faculty, editor of Communication Booknotes Quarterly and more than a dozen books including Stay Tuned: A Concise History of American Broadcasting.
