    From music to gaming, information gathering to eLearning; eCommerce to eGovernment, Lorenzo Cantoni and Stefano Tardini's absorbing introduction considers the internet as a communication technology; the opportunities it affords us, the limitations it imposes and the functions it allows.

    Internet explores:

    • the political economy of the internet
    • hypertext
    • computer mediated communication
    • websites as communication
    • conceptualizing users of the internet
    • internet communities and practices.

    Perfect for students studying this modern phenomenon, and a veritable e-feast for all cyber junkies.
