About the Author:

The Editor: Sharon Kleinman is Professor of Communications at Quinnipiac University. Her research focuses on the social implications of communication technologies and on issues concerning online and place-based communities. She is the editor of the critically acclaimed book Displacing Place: Mobile Communication in the Twenty-first Century (Peter Lang, 2007). She holds a B.A. in English and American literature from Brandeis University and an M.S. and a Ph.D. in communication from Cornell University.

Review:

«The authors have presented provocative contexts, and the editor has organized and shaped the sequence of the individual chapters to unfold before us, allowing us to lose ourselves in the moments of the words, only to feel refreshed and renewed. I think you will agree with me, reading this book has been time well spent.» (From Jarice Hanson’s Afterword)
