This book deals with the implications of convergence in communications. A wide-range of papers by expert scholars and inside policy analysts have been selected in order to capture the convergence issue from a number of perspectives, and to achieve a historical state-of-the-art. The book represents a holistic approach to convergence, bringing to bear a number of critical perspectives: economics, engineering, business, organization theory, psychology, policy analysis, and even analysis related to international relations. The volume succeeds in providing a multi-faceted and rich view of convergence, and also on issues beyond convergence. "Convergence in Communications and Beyond" will be a useful tool for schools of communication, centers for telecommunications studies, business schools, policy departments, telecommunication operators, suppliers and consulting companies as well as libraries and organisations interested in communications.
