Description - Virtual Culture by Steven Jones
This text provides an analysis of the way in which under-represented groups - gay men, women and special-interest groups - are exploiting the opportunities that the Internet provides for social and political change. It presents contributions from a range of subject disciplines in order to reflect the diverse paradigms engaged in the study of electronic communities and networks. The book sets out the definitions, boundaries and approaches to the study of these topics, while demonstrating the theoretical and practical possibilities for cybersociety as an identity-structured space.
