Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'By far the most sophisticated historical and theoretical treatment of the Internet to appear so far, yet a real pleasure to read. Enormously comprehensive and tough minded, The Internet and Society dramatically raises the level of discussion about a phenomenon that is radically changing the way we live.' James Lull, Professor of Communication Studies, San Jose State University, California

'Slevin sets out to challenge traditional ways of looking at the internet and he achieves this. His book is challenging and thought-provoking, and a first step towards an understanding of the cultural impact of the internet. His work is well informed and well based in previous scholarship.' Business History

'An insightful analysis into the interplay between communication and culture.' Sunday Tribune (Dublin)

'This book deserves much praise. Slevin provides a well reasoned and systematic account that illuminates the social situatedness and significance of the internet within contemporary society.' Lincoln Dahlberg, Convergence
