Today's ever-expanding communications technologies force us to relate to more people and institutions than ever before, challenging the way we view ourselves and our relationships. This powerful and provocative book draws from a wide range of disciplines--from anthropology to psychoanalysis, from film and fiction to literary theory--to explore these profound changes in our understanding of self-identity and their implications for cultural and intellectual life.
