This collection is devoted to international communication history. Although researchers have long produced work related to this area, this special issue marks the first treatment of the subject as a distinct body of knowledge and area of inquiry. The subject matter of these five articles spans approximately a century, with the first focusing on the 1884 conference on international time reckoning and the last focusing on a collective memory of the 1960s and 1970s war in Vietnam. The articles reflect shifting paradigms in multiple realms--international affairs, theoretical frameworks, types of questions posed--and thus, by their nature, point up the richness of areas awaiting study.
