This indispensable reference demonstrates an increased maturity and stature for new media research within the field' - William H Dutton, University of Southern California 'A truly comprehensive and authoritative volume. This Handbook will be an absolutely essential text for anyone concerned with social aspects of the new media' - Kevin Robins, Goldsmiths College, University of London The past 20 years have seen remarkable growth in research and scholarship addressing new information and communication techlogies and their social contexts. Often called 'new media' research, this growing field is both international and interdisciplinary. The Handbook of New Media sets out boundaries of new media research and scholarship and provides a definitive statement of the current state-of-the-art of the field. Divided into six sections covering major problem areas of research, the Handbook includes an introductory essay by the editors and a concluding essay by Ron Rice. Each chapter, written by an internationally rewned scholar, provides a review of the most significant social research findings and insights. This Handbook will be an indispensable volume on the personal bookshelves of all scholars working in the area, required reading for graduate students, a reference work for established researchers and newcomers to new media scholarship, and an intellectual benchmark for the field.
