Editorial Reviews

Review

"Schulte (Univ. of Arkansas) captures the reader's attention in the first chapter by showing how the science fiction film WarGames (1983) gave the Internet both a game for teenagers and a 'potential weapon for global destruction....' A useful, scholarly resource for readers interested in the cultural development of the Internet."-Choice

This is the most culturally sophisticated history of the Internet yet written. We can't make sense of what the Internet means in our lives without reading Schulte's elegant account of what the Internet has meant at various points in the past 30 years.-Siva Vaidhyanathan,Chair of the Department of Media Studies at The University of Virginia

"The strengths of Cached: Decoding the Internet in Global Popular Culture lie in its rich, detailed, engaging, and engrossing stories of the Internet. Schulte convincingly shows technology as a product of historical legacies, as well as cultural and politics."-Bessie Chu,International Journal of Communication

Format: Paperback
Stephanie Schulte is a brilliant scholar and all of her smarts are on display in this seminal book on the cultural history of the internet. She deftly combines close readings of a variety of pop culture texts (from WarGames to PC ads) alongside the policy shifts in America and Europe to help elucidate the contextual meanings of the internet. Clear and crisp, Cached is truly a must-read for anyone interested in cultural history, media studies, communications, or American studies or, really, anyone who wants to understand how the internet has been continuously re-negotiated through culture and policy at the end of the 20th century.

Format: Paperback
You've never heard the story of the internet's emergence told like this! Schulte weaves together complex theory, technological history, policy studies, and pop cultural analysis in Cached. With an archive that ranges from German Internet policy documents to old computer advertisements to blockbuster movies like WarGames, this is a rich and accessible text for students, professors, and popular audiences alike--a rare feat for an academic author.
