The Wonder Phone in the Land of Miracles: Mobile Telephony in Israel
Hampton Press, 2008 - Technology & Engineering - 230 pages
In analyzing the mobile phone as it is contextualized in Israeli society, two opposing social forces can clearly be seen: on one hand, the mobile is an expression of late modernity and globalization; but on the other hand it is recruited as a tool - as well as a symbol - for the expression of locality and patriotic sentiments."--BOOK JACKET.
