New Media Theory Reader by Robert Hassan
Book DescriptionThe study of new media opens up some of the most fascinating issues in contemporary culture: questions of ownership and control over information and cultural goods; the changing experience of space and time; the political consequences of new communication technologies; and the power of users and consumers to disrupt established economic and business models. "The New Media Theory Reader" brings together key readings on new media - what it is, where it came from, how it affects our lives, and how it is managed. Using work from media studies, cultural history and cultural studies, economics, law, and politics, the essays encourage readers to pay close attention to the 'new' in new media, as well as considering it as a historical phenomenon. The Reader features a general introduction as well as an editors' introduction to each thematic section, and a useful summary of each reading. "The New Media Theory Reader" is an indispensable text for students on new media, technology, sociology and media studies courses. It includes essays by: Andrew Barry, Benjamin R Barber, James Boyle, James Carey, Benjamin Compaine, Noam Cook, Andrew Graham, Nicola Green, Thomas Hylland Eriksen, Ian Hunter, Kevin Kelly, Heejin Lee, Lawrence Lessig, Jonathan Liebenau, Jessica Litman, Lev Manovich, Michael Marien Robert W.

What are we to make of the information society? Many prominent theorists have argued it to be the most profound and comprehensive transformation of economy, culture and politics since the rise of the industrial way of life in the 18th century.
Media, Politics and the Network Society, Paperback (March 2004)» View all books by Robert Hassan
What is the network society? What are the competing forces in the network society, and how are they reshaping the world? Using the ideas in media theory, cultural studies and the politics of the 'networked civil society', this work argues that the network society is steeped with contradictions and in a state of deep flux.
