Abstract

Book Review: Tsatsou Panayiota , Internet Studies: Past, Present and Future Directions. Farnham: Ashgate Pubishing, 2014; 279 pp. ISBN: 9781409446415, AUD$245.95.

Extract: Panayiota Tsatsou’s Internet Studies: Past, Present and Future Directions is an ambitious work that reviews two decades of research on the Internet. Tsatsou’s goals were to provide an improved understanding of the nature of the Internet, explain how researchers have historically approached and studied the Internet and consider how the Internet’s structures and functions relate to its use in individual and social settings. This is a large undertaking and while the author acknowledges the book inevitably represents a broad overview of the field, the breadth of case studies is nonetheless impressive.
