Abstract

The growth of the internet has been spectacular. There are now more 1.5 billion internet users across the globe, about one quarter of the world’s population. This is certainly a new phenomenon that is of enormous significance for the economic, political and social life of contemporary societies. Misunderstanding the Internet is a polemical, sociologically and historically informed textbook that aims to challenge both popular myths and existing academic orthodoxies around the internet. Reviewed by Aidan Byrne. Misunderstanding the Internet. James Curran, Natalie Fenton and Des Freedman. Routledge. March 2012.
