Summary
  • "Technology is not a new development; the novelty lies in its total domination of our social lives. This book uses social theory to make sense of the growing role of technology in our lives at home, at work or at leisure. Drawing on the latest empirical work, it gives a clear sociological analysis of technology for all social science students."--Publisher's website
