Overview

This second edition of Jay David Bolter's classic text expands on the objectives of the original volume, illustrating the relationship of print to new media, and examining how hypertext and other forms of electronic writing refashion or "remediate" the forms and genres of print. Reflecting the dynamic changes in electronic technology since the first edition, this revision incorporates the Web and other current standards of electronic writing. As a text for students in composition, new technologies, information studies, and related areas, this volume provides a unique examination of the computer as a technology for reading and writing.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
When Bolter (Georgia Institute of Technology) finished the first edition in the early 1990s, the World Wide Web was only a couple years old and was still used primarily by research centers and universities. Changes in the technology, the use of it, and the perception of it has convinced him to shift the focus of the second edition to show how hypertext and other forms of electronic writing refashion the forms and genres of print.
