This book combines a fresh interpretation of the Internet and ICT (Information and Communications Technology), with a new approach for their understanding. It offers an exciting challenge to how the Internet and ICT have been understood in academia and popular culture and shows how important 'cultural' assumptions are in how we understand technology. It argues that the way in which we view technology such as the Internet owes much to older, historic views of the media and to 'issues' in contemporary society. Such perspectives are deeply rooted in a Western view of technology and the book concludes by offering a radically new perspective as to how the Internet can change society that is truly global in its application.This title offers an original approach to ICT and the Internet that challenges the orthodoxy. Very topical subject matter - the book addresses many of the issues regarded of key import in high level political discussions (such as the World Summit on the Information Society); the current understanding of ICT and how to move beyond this interpretation, acknowledging the imprint of western values in interpretations and developing a more heterogeneous understanding of ICT. It provides an approach that moves the debate forward and offers a truly global way of understanding the Internet and ICT. It is a wide-ranging text that explores how we currently understand the Internet and ICT.

The internet has fundamentally transformed society in the past 25 years, yet existing theories of mass or interpersonal communication do not work well in understanding a digital world. Nor has this understanding been helped by disciplinary specialization and a continual focus on the latest innovations. Ralph Schroeder takes a longer-term view, synthesizing perspectives and findings from various social science disciplines in four countries: the United States, Sweden, India and China. His comparison highlights, among other observations, that smartphones are in many

Sociolinguistic evidence is an undervalued resource for social theory. In this book, Jan Blommaert uses contemporary sociolinguistic insights to develop a new sociological imagination, exploring how we construct and operate in online spaces, and what the implications of this are for offline social practice. Taking Émile Durkheim's concept of the 'social fact' (social behaviours that we all undertake under the influence of the society we live in) as the point of departure, he first demonstrates how the facts of language
