Summary
"The Internet and Society explores the impact of the internet on modern culture beyond the fashionable celebration of 'anything goes' online culture or the overly pessimistic conceptions tainted by the logic of domination. In this new work, James Slevin develops an account of the internet and relates it to the analysis of culture and communications in late modern societies." "This accessible and non-technical book will be of particular interest to students of media, communications and cultural studies, and of interest to anyone concerned with the effect of new technologies on modern culture and society."--BOOK JACKET
