The past 20 years have seen remarkable growth in research and scholarship addressing new information and communication technologies and their social contexts. Often called `new media' research, this growing field is both international and interdisciplinary.

The Handbook of New Media sets out boundaries of new media research and scholarship and provides a definitive statement of the current state-of-the-art of the field. Divided into six sections covering major problem areas of research, the Handbook includes an introductory essay by the editors and a concluding essay by Ronald E Rice. Each chapter, written by an internationally renowned scholar, provides a review of the most significant social research findings and insights.

This Handbook will be an indispensable volume on the personal bookshelves of all scholars working in the area, required reading for graduate students, a reference work for established researchers and newcomers to new media scholarship, and an intellectual benchmark for the field.
