MEDIA REVIEWS

'This book not only examines a crucial cultural and political issue, it is also a clear demonstration of some of the methodological and technical issues that we now face in undertaking contemporary historical analysis. This is a book that should appeal to those interested in modern history as well as those interested in the sociology of new media. It is a compelling and informative read.'

Professor Roger Burrows, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK

'This book represents a pivotal moment in the study of digital culture. The weaving together of various types of eclectic resources reveals the underlying stories of digital distribution. As a result this book provides the much needed historical context upon which the study of new media should be built and acts as an antidote to more reactionary or sensational commentaries of digital culture. Its focus though is not upon the familiar or established stories but upon the people, the devices, the organizations and the moments of chance that come together to shape the form that contemporary media take.'

Dr David Beer, University of York, UK
