Second edition of Professor Mark Graham’s Society and the Internet available now
A second edition of Society and the Internet from Green Templeton College Senior Research Fellow Professor Mark Graham has been published by Oxford University Press.
The new book, co-edited by Mark and William H. Dutton, gives an overview of the key issues surrounding the internet and its impact on society.
It has been fully updated and presents the latest research from leading scholars, looking at how that research can generate debate on theory, policy, and practice.
New chapters cover topics including fake news, memes, digital health, and the platform economy.
The book features a foreword by Manual Castells and is split into five focused sections: The Internet in Everyday Life; Digital Rights and Human Rights; Networked Ideas, Politics and Governance; Networked Businesses, Industries and Economics; and Technological and Regulatory Histories and Futures.
Mark, who is Professor of Internet Geography at the Oxford Internet Institute, said: “It was a pleasure getting to work with so many talented scholars, and with my wonderful co-editor and collaborator Bill Dutton. I hope you all enjoy the collection.”
Society and the Internet: How Networks of Information and Communication are Changing our Lives (2019) is available as hardback, paperback, or eBook via Oxford University Press here.
