Design Issues in CSCW is the first book to systematically examine the implications of focusing computer system design on the end-user perspective. The authors explore the fundamental issue of which design perspectives are the most suitable for CSCW, and also address the central questions of "how and why is design in the context of CSCW different from the established theories and practices?" Each chapter represents an example of the interdisciplinary approach towards CSCW design, in its theoretical orientation and in its practice. As a whole, the volume covers the theoretical underpinnings for CSCW design, aspects of CSCW methodology, and associated development of analytical frameworks. The authors represent a growing community of scientists and practitioners whose work exhibits the belief that social science and computer science can, and must, be fruitfully integrated.
