There’s no question that e-mail is an incredible phenomenon that represents a kind of cultural and technological advancement. The first e-mail was sent less than forty years ago; by 2011, there will be 3.2 billion e-mail users. The average corporate worker now receives upwards of two hundred e-mails per day. The flood of messages is ceaseless and follows us everywhere. In The Tyranny of E-mail, John Freeman takes an entertaining look at the unrelenting nature of correspondence through the ages. Put down your smart phone and consider the consequences. As the toll of e-mail mounts, reducing our time for leisure and contemplation and separating us in an unending and lonely battle with the overfull inbox, John Freeman—one of America’s preeminent literary critics—enters a plea for communication that is more selective and nuanced and, above all, more sociable.

Are email and SMS forms of writing or speech? This question cannot be answered easily because their registers are hybrid; they make use of both orality and literacy. This book offers an accurate placement of emails and text messages along the written/spoken continuum. Emails and text messages are also compared to letters and phone calls while a closer comparison of SMS and telegrams shows how far text messaging can be regarded as a renaissance of telegrams. Attention is further paid to multimedia messaging and questions concerning the proportion of image to text, picture categories as well as MMS dialogues are approached.

Email, the system I invented in 1978, while a 14-year-old boy, to enable collaboration and communication among office workers at a small medical college in Newark, NJ, has now become the center of many controversies. For their 125th Anniversary issue, The Wall Street Journal commissioned me as email's inventor to write a brief essay entitled The Future of Email. That article shared what email really is and where email is heading. More recently, The New York Times interviewed me to comment on Hillary Clinton's use of personal email server to manage classified U.S. government communications. In that article, I shared that the use of a personal email server was extraordinary, wrong and clearly a well-planned strategy by Ms. Clinton to deny the American public's rightful access to communications that were government property. This book is a much-needed expansion of those thoughts and comments to provide you important insights to where email is going and why you as citizens must take action to protect this important medium, which has been subverted by vested interests. I believe with all sincerity and without hyperbole you should listen to what I'm going to share, as I am not only the world's leading expert on this subject but also have a historical and political perspective that will enable you to realize that if we do not act, our freedom, which has already been compromised, will suffer even more greatly, in a future where Have's and Have Not's will be defined by the level of security they have to their email communications.
