    "Race in Cyberspace is relevant to a rhetorically-based vision of the field because it opens up opportunities for a more insightful understanding of how race can operate in environments that assume it is- and should be- irrelevant." -- Adam J. Banks, Technical Communication Quarterly
    "This collection is the first scholarly attempt to examine issues of race in 'cyberspace.' A discussion of this subject in any medium has been pressing for more than a decade. Despite the exponential growth of the computer industry and network communications during the last twenty years, considerations of the role of 'race' in the production and popular uses of the technology have been repressed. For breaking the silence, this book will remain an important contribution... This collection will enrich scholar's understanding of race in 'cyberspace'." -- Maria Fernandez, Callaloo
