As organizations shift their work space from more traditional tethered locations to geographically dispersed spaces, virtual work is emerging as a critical feature of contemporary organizational life.

Virtual Work and Human Interaction Research uses humanistic and social scientific inquiry from interdisciplinary and international perspectives to explore how individuals engage in the new virtual work paradigm. This book explores a wide range of topics including, but not limited to, boundary management in virtual work, shadowing virtual work practices, creative workers' attitudes in virtual work, high-touch interactivity in virtual experiences, surveys, interviews experimental, ethnography grounded-theory, and phenomenology in virtual work contexts.

Review:

Intended for researchers, this volume collects quantitative and qualitative studies on virtual work practices, possibilities, and limitations. Four studies from the University of North Carolina examine the impact of virtual work on creative workers' attitudes, the role of experiments in the study of virtual groups, phenomenology, and dramaturgy. The other 13 papers analyze the timing of replies to mobile text messages, describe digital content for high-touch interactions, map a typology of culturally-related challenge to global virtual teams, and offer advice on conducting virtual surveys. --Annotation ©2012 Book News Inc. Portland, OR

An informative set of articles about the virtual work space and the people who work in this environment. [Long's] extensive body of work, as well as his demonstrated leadership achievement in university and professional academic programs, more than qualifies him for editorship. The 17 articles cover a broad range of topics concerning individual and cultural/group communication dynamics in virtual work; they also apply a variety of research and analytical methods." [...] "Summing up: Recommended. Graduate and research collections. --CHOICE, Vol. 50, No. 04. N.J. Johnson, formerly Metropolitan State University

This book brings together international and interdisciplinary scholars with diverse theoretical and methodological orientations, from a variety of legacy disciplines. This is an interdisciplinary and international project. My hope is that this book and the diverse contributions in this volume signal the importance of focusing on the broad opportunities the virtual work paradigm offers to researchers and practitioners worldwide and that spirited disciplinary and international conversations will continue around this topic. --Shawn Long, University of North Carolina Charlotte, USA
