The Cyberspace Handbook is a comprehensive guide to all aspects of new media, information technologies and the internet. It gives an overview of the economic, political, social and cultural contexts of cyberspace, and provides practical advice on using new technologies for research, communication and publication.

 The Cyberspace Handbook includes:

*a glossary of over eighty key terms
*a list of over ninety web resources for news and entertainment, new media and web development, education and reference, and internet and web information
* specialist chapters on web design and journalism and writing on the web
*Over thirty illustrations of internet material and software applications.

Jason Whittaker explores how cyberspace has been constructed, how it is used and extends into areas as different as providing us immediate news or immersive games and virtual technologies for areas such as copyright and cybercrime, as well as key skills in employing the internet for research or writing and designing for the Web.
