Human social interaction and communication didn’t just follow on from the emergence of homo sapiens but almost certainly contributed to that emergence and dominance over other species. In this lecture Lord Giddens shall stress the importance of media of communication in social evolution, leading from the hunting and gathering societies to city-based civilisations and later to the global society of today.
