Chapter 3 America's First revelotion

"Since the seventeenth century, the development of communications, particually of newspapers and postal services had begun to provide Europeans and Americans with regular information about the public world." (Starr. ch 3 pg 83). In this chapter Paul starr discusses the significant emergence of the newapaper. Without the actual emergence of the newspaper, the world of communication would not be as vast as it is today. for instance according to Paul Starr the newspaper industry began to blossom between 1790 and 1835. newspaper amounts rose from 106 to 1,258. Europe was where the newspaper industry began to grow. by the 1820's 50% of households had newspapers. i belive that without the emergence of the newspaper society would be lost. Newspapers are Americas verbal communicator as to things that are happening in this world. without them everything would be at a lost.
