New Media: A Critical Introduction provides a comprehensive overview of the culture, technologies and history of new media. The authors consider the ways in which "new media" really are new, assess claims that a media and technological revolution is underway, and formulate new ways for media studies to respond to current events. They address a range of key debates surrounding the use and promise of new media forms, including issues of authorship, textuality, community, identity, interactivity, vision andvisuality, the nature and power of technology, intelligent systems and artificial life. Structured into cross-referenced thematic sections, the book features case studies, a user's guide and an extensive glossary of terms, with summaries of key points and a comprehensive guide to further reading for each section.
