"I am enthusiastically European; no informed person could seriously wish to return to the embattled, mutually antagonistic circle of suspicious and introverted nations that was the European continent in the quite recent past. But it is one thing to think an outcome desirable, quite another to suppose it is possible. It is my contention that a truly united Europe is sufficiently unlikely for it to be unwise and self-defeating to insist upon it. I am thus, I suppose, a Euro-pessimist." -Tony Judt

Review quote

"Every essay develops a cultural studies approach to understanding the World Wide Web that feels more unified in purpose than many other collections. Moreover, unlike most of the other collections that comprise the "new millennium" wave . . ., Swiss's book sustains its commitments to critical perspectives throughout. The wide range of interconnected topics makes for a valuable "re-introduction" to the World Wide Web."-"Journal of Advanced Composition",
