    Marconi: The Man Who Networked the World Hardcover – Jul 21 "Rescuing his subject from hagiography, Marc Raboy gives us the first real account of Marconi's vital role as the wizard of wireless, industry developer, and consummate political insider. Raboy's impeccably researched biography will help guide histories of global media in Reviews: 2. Marconi, which functions as a cultural history as much as a biography, reminds us that in its earliest incarnations, wireless had a romance and mystique."--New York Times "Mr. Raboy's book is a rock-solid, archivally based, professional work of history and surely one of the year's better biographies."--Paul Kennedy, Wall Street Journal.
