Synopsis

Transcending recent attempts to pigeonhole 'the information revolution', this book shows how the paradoxical aspects of new media and the Internet (is it masculine or feminine? Does it mean peace or war?) are the peculiarly intense expression of the contradictions underlying our whole society. Andrew Calcutt is an enthusiastic champion of the potential for new communications technology, and a trenchant critic of the culture of fear which prevents its realisation.

ANDREW CALCUTT is a frequent contributor to LM Magazine and a commissioning editor at Web-Content Providers Cyberia Online. His work has also appeared in Arena, Futures, The Idler and The Modern Review. Previous publications include Arrested Development: Pop Culture and the Erosion of Adulthood, and Beat: the Iconography of Victimhood from the Beats to Princess Diana.
