Regulation, Chaos and a Vast Wasteland: New Book Dials in to Past & Present of the Radio Spectrum

by

My forthcoming book, The Political Spectrum: The Tumultuous Liberation of Wireless Technology, from Herbert Hoover to the Smartphone, delves into the invisible, odorless and ubiquitous medium through which electronic communications travel – the radio spectrum.

Reforms to liberate the radio spectrum over the past several decades have generated explosive progress, ushering in the “smartphone revolution,” social media, and the amazing wireless world now emerging. After more than a century of grappling with its possibilities, however, the battle is not even half won – and yet, no natural resource is likely to be more critical to human progress in the 21st century.
