  Highlights

  Comprehensive yet concise. Offers in-depth discussions of the rise
of technology, major sociological theories, and real-life examples,
giving students a well-rounded introduction to the study of technology
and society.

  Accessible coverage of cutting-edge topics. Emphasizes the human
context of topics such as real-time technologies, wearable computing,
electronic surveillance, and virtual mourning.

  Balances theory with real-world examples. Abstract concepts are
illustrated by real-life examples such as Obama's campaign strategies
and the use of Twitter in the recent Iran election conflict.

  Explores technology as a social process. Approaches technological
issues through the lenses of social structures such as power,
inequality, and communication.
