The first edition of Understanding Digital Culture set a new benchmark as the most comprehensive, scholarly and accessible introduction to the area. This latest edition, thoroughly updated and substantially expanded, is even better – a perfectly balanced book that combines theory and empirical analysis to illuminate the cutting-edge of cultural and social change.
Vince Miller's new edition of Understanding Digital Culture is a key reading for everyone who wants to come to grips with the complexities of media, the economy, culture, society, privacy, surveillance, politics, the public sphere, identity, crime, terror, war, community, and the body in the digital age.
Vincent Miller is Lecturer in Sociology in the School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research at the University of Kent
