ABSTRACT
The author shows different stages for the study of communication in Latin America, from public opinion analysis up to multinational communication, new technologies and popular communication. The final conclusion leads to a double path. On one hand, there is a lack of coordination in the area; and on the other, it has become clear enough an increasing political interest on the research of communication.
