Understanding the Web: Social, Political, and Economic Dimensions of the Internet, considers the Internet from a different perspective than most other texts on the subject. While most books approach the subject of the Internet from a "how to" standpoint, this book is unique in its examination of the Web's effect at four distinct levels. Co-editors Albarran and Goff, along with a field of experts, closely examine the impact of the Internet on the individual, the group, the state/nation, and finally the globe.
