This book explores the perils and promise of the social- media revolution through a collection of writings by today's best thinkers and cultural commentators, with an all-new introduction by Bauerlein.
Twitter, Facebook, e-publishing, blogs, distance learning, and other social media raise some of the most divisive cultural questions of our time. While some see these technological breakthroughs as hopeful and democratic new steps in education, information gathering, and human progress, others are deeply concerned by the erosion of civility online, declining reading habits, withering attention spans, and the damaging effects of 24/7 peer pressure on our youth. Without taking sides, Bauerlein’s book frames the discussion so that leading voices from across the spectrum have the opportunity to weigh in on the profound issues and questions raised by the new media.
