About this title


Hypertext is the term coined for the storage of electronic data, whether it be textual or graphic, in such a way that the whole file, in addition to, say, a word processor, becomes an electronic "concordance." This book positions hypertext in an interdisciplinary area created by the overlap of psychology, computer science and information science, in addition to assessing its importance in the field of electronic publishing. Rather than simply summarize everything that has gone before, it aims to provide a position statement from which further work can be suggested. This book will be of interest to researchers, software authors, publishers and anyone concerned with distributing information.


"An excellent introduction to an area of increasing interest. Text and supporting material are easily readable, yet provide a solid and realistic background to hypertext." Choice

"Their book is well researched and presents supporting information from psychological studies and actual physical experimentation. The review of research in human-computer interaction and cognition is impressive....well written and an excellent resource for further work in the area." August M. Turano, Computer

"...challenges several claims made about hypertext systems....should be read and thought about by hypertext researchers and designers." Christopher Fox, Computing Reviews

"I would characterize the book as a collection of insightful essays on fundamental topics in hypertext. Readers who will benefit most from the book are those who already have quite a bit of knowledge about hypertext and the research that has been conducted. Although the book is highly readable and concise, a considerable amount of background knowledge is assumed." Mark Chignell, Journal of the American Society of Information Science
