Review:

"As more and more people use computers, the Internet and mobile phones, the study of their effects on our culture (and vice versa) becomes increasingly important. Framed as a "how-to guide for those new to cyberstudies," Critical Cyberculture Studies goes some of the way to emphasising the importance and the diversity of this young academic field."
-"M/C Reviews",

"Rich with ideas, the book excels by stimulating thought and generating discussion."
-"Information, Communication, and Society",

"This expansive book functions as both survey and call to action. Even as they map the shifting contours of an emergent field, the editors and contributors warn against the deadening force of disciplinarity. They encourage a nimble, flexible formulation of cyberculture studies, one that can keep pace with the rapid pulse of technological change and, more importantly, also address the injustices wrought of life in a networked age. Like the best traditions of cultural studies, they aim not just to describe our moment but to matter in the world."
-Tara McPherson, USC School of Cinema-Television

"As studies of the Internet and cyberculture begin to mature, it is a particularly important time for critical studies--critical of the subject matter, and critical of the emerging field itself. The consciously interdisciplinary approach of Critical Cyberculture Studies, and the depth and breadth of the contributions, make this an important foundational work for a new field of study. If only we had had a critical study of communication when the Gutenberg revolution was beginning!"
-Howard Rheingold, author of "The Virtual Community" and "Smart Mobs"

Synopsis:

Traditionally, Italian Jewish culture in early modern Europe has been considered, at worst, irrelevant and, at best, has been marginally represented by the image of the token Shylockian moneylender or mysterious Jewish astrologer. In recent years, however, this inaccurate portrait has been convincingly dispelled by a plethora of scholars and studies that recognize Italian Jewish culture as an historically valuable and intrinsically interesting subject. The papers collected in this volume, intended for students of Jewish history - as well as to students of Renaissance and early modern European culture constitute an authoritative sampling of this scholarship, addressing such topics as Italian Jewish preaching, the Kabbalah in the Renaissance; Jewish historiography in the 16th century, messianic expectations during the Renaissance and Jewish cultural trends in the ghetto.
