Academy; Price
Editors: Helen Nissenbaum and Monroe E. Price

This book explores the impact of the Internet on scholarly research across and beyond the social sciences. The contributors – leading figures in a broad spectrum of disciplines – explain how their fields of inquiry are being redefined, and what issues of social change are salient as new information technologies increasingly become the subject of scholarly analysis. They have rendered a conceptual photograph of how their disciplines are coping with the impact of information technology by covering policy approaches, empirical research, and theoretical questions. Academy & the Internet highlights significant zones of inquiry and provides a critical perspective on the direction each discipline is traveling.
