History of Communication in Brazil (História da Comunicação no Brasil, in Portuguese) is the title of the new book written by the PhD Professor Marialva Barbosa (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro/UFRJ), published by Editora Vozes. In the book, the author addresses the classical themes of the implantation of Media in the country - Newspaper, Radio and TV - but, specially, puts on scene silenced facts, as the marks of Brazilian typical orality influencing the formation of our Press and the reading and clerks practices by black people, slaves or freemen. Thus, the story proposed by Marialva is focused less on the trajectory of the Media and more on society and individuals.
