Technological advancements in the West since the last millennium have contributed to global modernity. Technologies set conditions for the closeness of the nation-states and for the affinity of the global and the local. They are also penetrating everyday life, and even sometimes the body, producing radical social changes. Yet, arguing that new technologies bring a new life and a promising future to global societies remains a questionable thesis.This book attempts to explore the relationship between new technologies and global societies, to gain an understanding of how the positive as well as negative influences of technologies bear on global societies, how their practices of use are resisted or re-interpreted by these societies, and how their social meaning is constituted through the process of negotiation with these societies. Part 1 is on science, technology, culture, and the body; Part 2 is on new media and generations, and Part 3 is on information and communication technologies (ICTs) and work.This book has been selected for coverage in:Index to Social Sciences & Humanities Proceedings (R) (ISSHP (R)/ISI Proceedings)Index to Social Sciences & Humanities Proceedings (ISSHP CDROM version/ISI Proceedings)

"It covers several different forms of mediation and gives the reader insight into a broad range of both policy and pragmatic issues associated with the adoption and use of these technologies. A very strong point is the heavy emphasis on the situation in China ... China is, after all, the largest single mobile telephony market in the world. Thus, this volume does us all a service by providing some insight into the goings-on there. Another positive dimension of this volume is that it does not simply equate technology with the internet. Thus, it can correctly claim, as it does in its title, that it examines new technologies in a global context." International Journal of Communication
