Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Jordan (sociology, University of East London) draws on case studies, original research, and statistical and theoretical analysis to find out who actually governs cyberspace and what powers the individual can control there. Discussion encompasses the collective imagination in cyberspace, the virtual individual, and power and society as created by the Internet, with examples ranging from cross-gendered virtual selves to the meaning of Bill Gates. Useful for students as a complete analysis of the culture and politics of the Internet. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknew.com)
