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.
