>New Book Reviews in Cyberculture Studies
>Each month, the Resource Center for Cyberculture Studies (RCCS)
><> publishes two or three full-length book reviews.
>The reviews reflect a modest attempt to locate critically various
>contours of the emerging and interdisciplinary field of cyberculture
>studies. To date, RCCS has reviewed over 60 books, covering a range of
>topics, from online culture, communities, and identities to hypertext,
>digital literacy, and artificial intelligence to Internet policy, the
>digital divide, and online privacy.
>This month, RCCS features five reviews of three books. We begin with two
>reviews (by Mark Andrejevic and M. Michael Schiff) of "Machinic
>Modulations: New Cultural Theory & Technopolitics," a special issue of
>*Angelaki: Journal of the Theoretical Humanities* edited by John
>Armitage, followed by a rejoinder from Armitage. Next is a review by Ryan
>Bishop of Paul N. Edwards' *The Closed World: Computers and the Politics
>of Discourse in Cold War America* (MIT Press, 1996). Finally, we feature
>two reviews (by Dan Orr and Andrew Hess) of Lawrence Lessig's *Code and
>Other Laws of Cyberspace* (Basic Books, 1999).
>Forthcoming books to be reviewed include Zillah Eisenstein's *Global
>Obscenities: Patriarchy, Capitalism, and the Lure of Cyberfantasy* and
>Anne B. Keating with Joseph Hargitai's *The Wired Professor: A Guide to
>Incorporating the World Wide Web in College Instruction*.
>If you or your colleagues have any interest in reviewing books for RCCS,
>contact us directly at <>. Please feel free to forward
>this message.
