Editorial Reviews

Review

'The hope that the internet will promote tolerance, liberated sensibility and social inclusion is attacked with flair, insight and extensive evidence in this fine book that will be of interest to academics and students around the world.' ─ James Curran, Professor of Communications, Goldsmiths, University of London

'This is a must-have collection. Bringing together distinguished authors and emergent voices, Race After the Internet breaks new material ground in a field hampered by immaterialist fantasies. We are fortunate that crucial questions of race and new media are being investigated by such skilled and adventurous writers.' ─ Toby Miller, Professor of Media & Cultural Studies, University of California Riverside

‘The volume adds more examples and analyses to existing scholarship about the meaning of race in the digital age by arguing that race is not a representation that media users consume, but is a type of code they perform. The authors examine the race-based digital divide, the establishment and reinforcement of digital segregation and "ghettos", digital codes, and biotechnology....an accessible book for upper-level academic audiences.’ ─ Y. Kiuchi, Michigan State University
