Social Theory After the Internet: Media, Technology, and Globalization by Ralph Schroeder
English | Feb. 15, 2018 | ISBN: 1787351238 | 210 Pages | PDF | 11 MB

The internet has fundamentally transformed society in the past twenty-five years, yet existing theories of communication have not kept pace with the digital world. This book focuses on everyday effects of the internet—including information-seeking, big data, and the growing importance of smartphone use—to explain how the internet surpasses traditional media. Synthesizing global perspectives, Ralph Schroeder posits a theory on the internet’s role, and how both technological and social forces shape its significance.
