About the Book

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.
