Overview

Psychology and the Internet provides the first resource to examine how using the Internet affects our definition of who we are and our communication and work patterns. It also examines how normal behavior differs from the pathologic with respect to Internet use. The book contains three sections: the first covers the "self" in relation to the Internet. The second explores how the Internet is used to meet new friends and love interests, as well as to conduct business, and the final section looks into the philosophical ramifications of Net use and our definitions of self, reality, and work.

Audience: Researchers in social, clinical, cognitive, and industrial/organizational psychology. Sociologists, information scientists, and computer scientists.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nina Uziel-Miller, B.S.(Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book is a discussion of the relationship between psychology and the Internet.
Purpose: It is largely comprised of research reviews and scholarly discussions of the role of the Internet across a wide range of domains. Information is presented in a fairly sophisticated way that seems appropriate for those with interests in psychology and/or the Internet.
Audience: Although rather detailed information is presented, this book seems appropriate for those with a wide range of skill levels and experience.
Features: The editor and contributors present a wide range of topics including the intrapersonal, interpersonal, and transpersonal implications of the Internet. A variety of interesting topics are reviewed including the Internet and disinhibited behavior, addiction, therapy, sex, gender, the workplace, and the collective unconscious. They provide important information about an under-studied topic.
Assessment: The Internet plays an ever-growing role in our personal and professional lives and this book is a much needed resource to examine important and complex issues. The material presented proves to be both thought-provoking and thorough. This is an important contribution to the fields of psychology and technology.

From the Publisher
"...the authors have taken readers on a real journey down an information-laden highway that leads to a fascinating, limitless world or virtual reality. Especially appreciated throughout the book is the attempt by the authors to support their viewpoints by making reference to empirical findings."
—Richard Nicki, Canadian Psychology, October 07
