Handbook of New Media: social shaping and consequences of ICTs

Leah A Lievrouw, Sonia Livingstone (eds)  
Sage Publications (31 January 2002)

The past 20 years have seen remarkable growth in research and scholarship addressing new information and communication technologies 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 book includes an introductory essay by the editors and a concluding essay by Ronald E Rice, chair, Department of Communication, Rutgers University. Each chapter, written by an internationally renowned scholar, provides a review of the most significant social research findings and insights.
