Review:

"The book as a whole should provoke lively discussions in courses that address the relationship of technology, society, and culture."-Technology and Culture "[A] collection of...thoughtful papers."-Communications Booknotes Quarterly "Sturken, Thomas, and Ball-Rokeach collect a variety of studies on cultural narratives of technological change that investigate ways of understanding the nature and effects of new technology. All of the articles are excellent-interesting, original, and well-written and researched."-Douglas Kellner, George F. Kneller Chair in the Philosophy of Education, University of California, Los Angeles "Telescreens. Virtual communities. Wired cities. Information societies. The World Wide Web. Concepts like these can underpin a movement for or against a technical feasibility. This book is for anyone interested in the social shaping of the history and future of information and communication technologies and their societal implications."-Professor William H. Dutton, Director Oxford Internet Institute
