Great book, and especially important to understand the concentration of ownership within the telecom industry - - after, or concurrently - - reading this, be sure to read Tim Wu's "The Master Switch" paying close attention to his section on AT&T. (A telecom monopoly does make surveillance that much easier, albeit for a short time.) My one quibble: Standard Oil was never broken up in reality, only on paper, but the ownership and stocks remained in Rockefeller hands via their foundations and trusts - - see Matthieu Auzanneau's book, Oil, Power, and War plus John Moody's "The Masters of Capital" to better understand this.
