Bringing together the work of scholars, experts, and established online authors, this comprehensive book offers an analysis of both contemporary Web-based culture and arts and the impact of the Web on international economics, politics, and law. This second edition of Web.Studies combines updated chapters from the first edition with completely new chapters on the latest developments and controversies in cyberspace. Beginning with an introduction to the Web and how it works, the book outlines the theories and methodology of cyberculture studies, before moving on to explore aspects of everyday life online, art and commerce, global communities and the politics of Internet access and activism.

The book sets the agenda of a new period of media research and will help considerably to take media studies in new directions. Educational Book Review
