Chapter 1 focuses on the emergence of the class of 1866 as gatekeepers of the global media system to come by re-telling the story of the Great Atlantic Cable project (1854-1866) from their perspective. It shows how their transatlantic network formed, drawing on pre-existing local structures, such as the cable entrepreneurs of the British national telegraph system, the group of “American expatriates” in London or the elite circle of New Yorkers residing at Gramercy Park.
