This is the first collection of readings on computer-mediated communication focusing exclusively on interpersonal interactions. Examining messages exchanged via email, Twitter, Facebook, websites, and blogs, the authors analyze communication issues of ongoing importance in relationships including deception, disclosure, identity, influence, perception, privacy, sexual fidelity, and social support. The book examines subjects that attract intense student interest – including online performance of gender, online dating, and using computer-mediated communication to achieve family/work life balance – and will inspire further research and course development in the area of computer-mediated communication in personal relationships. Because it provides a synthesis of ideas at the nexus of interpersonal communication theory and computer-mediated communication theory, the book can serve as a textbook for advanced undergraduate as well as graduate courses.

Review:

«This is a work of breathtaking scholarship on China and its relationship to citizenship and citizenship education. Wing-Wah Law has combined meticulous historical analysis with innovative ideas about multilevel-multidimensional citizenship. His model synthesizing the continued importance of the nation-state, the new role of cities, and the significance of staging international events take the analysis far beyond that of China. A superb addition to the field of citizenship education in the complex politics of a globalized world.» (Professor Lynn Davies, Centre for International Education and Research, School of Education, University of Birmingham, United Kingdom)
«This is a must-read book for anyone interested in the latest developments of citizenship and citizenship education in China and how the development of citizenship reflects social change. The book is both informative and insightful, and is a significant contribution to the literature of globalization, citizenship, and citizenship education. Based on over a decade of scholarly work, the book carefully tracks why and how the state plays a strong role in shaping citizenship education to meet the current and future societal requirements and prudently analyzes particular incidents, such as the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, to show how the state uses globalization opportunities to shape a civilized citizenry.» (Professor Wing-On Lee, President of the World Council of Comparative Education Societies; and Dean of Research, National Institute of Education, Singapore)
«What amazes me most about this book is its unique and comprehensive combination of a meticulous analysis of historical development of citizenship and citizenship education in the Chinese context, convincing findings generated from solid empirical evidence, the thoughtful and useful theoretical framework built upon the author’s reflections on and scholarship in the field over decades, and enlightening conclusions illuminating new ways for the studies of citizenship and citizenship education in the future.» (Jun Li, Asia Pacific Journal of Education 33.1, 2014)
