The rush to the Information Superhighway and the transition to an Information Age have enormous political, ethical, and religious consequences. The essays collected here develop both interdisciplinary and international perspectives on privacy, critical thinking and literacy, democratization, gender, religion, and the very nature of the revolution promised in cyberspace. These essays are essential reading for anyone who wants to better understand and reflect upon these events and issues.

Review quote

"It is timely and offers a unique and, at times, profound interpretation of Computer Mediated Communication. It is an important philosophical discussion of the 'Internet.'" -- Robert Cavalier, Carnegie Mellon University "The essays that make up this interesting book do a good job surveying some of the central philosophical, moral, and political issues involved in hypertext, networked communication, and other aspects of the new, and increasingly important, digital textuality." -- George Landow, Brown University
