Caught in the Web argues for a new approach to media theory that allows technomedia to be studied on its own terms.

Caught in the Web argues for a new approach to media theory that allows technomedia to be studied on its own terms. Engaging in sociology, social theory, philosophy, and media studies, it provides an analysis of contemporary media technologies through the lens of various themes, including the ity debate, the state of knowledge, space/time, and cultural politics in our contemporary information age. At once an introduction to concepts in media studies and a critical work, Caught in the Web attempts to situate high theory in everyday life. Today it is clearer than ever that these not only play an active part in our everyday lives, but constitute our increasingly global realities.

CHOICE, November 2008). Caught in the Web is a clear, exciting, and complete survey of our changing commuicative environment. One of the book's most intriguing ideas is that New Media has created a social space that is as much virtual as it is real. Charles Lemert, Andrus Professor of Sociology, Wesleyan University). Navigating Technomedia serves nicely as an introduction to the broad issues in postmodernist analysis of electronic media and will quickly bring a determined reader up to speed so as to better understand emerging analysis. The work is anything but easy going, but neither is postmodernism.

From email to video and text messaging, so much of our present social life depends on media technologies. Today it is clearer than ever that these not only play an active part in our everyday lives, but constitute our increasingly global realities.

Engaging in sociology, social theory, philosophy, and media studies, it provides an analysis of contemporary media technologies through the lens of various themes, including the modernity/postmodernity debate, the state of knowledge, space/time, and cultural politics in our contemporary information age.

Reviews about Navigating Technomedia: Caught in the Web (New Social Formations) (2):

Mr. Han is very much a postmodernist, and that is perhaps the primary value of this book. It is now evident that most scholarship analyzing the nature of the World Wide Web is going to be dominated indefinitely by postmodernist approaches. To those of us who are perhaps less theoretical in our approach, or impatient to arrive at a "real" or "final" understanding of the nature of the Web, postmodernist theory often seems like a foreign language spoken by those who are self-referentially passing through an infinite regress. The minute they open one door and we believe we see a glimmer of understanding, another one, barred to us by our lack of vocabulary or unfamiliarity with the standards by which it was constructed, swings closed.

Navigating Technomedia serves nicely as an introduction to the broad issues in postmodernist analysis of electronic media and will quickly bring a determined reader up to speed so as to better understand emerging analysis. We emphasize "determined." The work is anything but easy going, but neither is postmodernism.

Very cool stuff. McLuhan + Baudrillard + Hip Hop! What's not to like?

I had the privilege to read this book when it was in the form of an undergraduate thesis -- I'm sure it has undergone significant expansion and revision since then -- and it was illuminating. Social theory with a postmodern twist, this book focuses on new questions in media studies surrounding The Internet, information technology, fragmentation of identity, "sampling," etc. Mind-blowing abstract theory rendered with uncommon precision into lucid, readable prose.

**I should point out again that the material I read is probably different from what is being sold here.**
