Product Description


"Although perspectives differ on whether the effects of mobile communication are beneficial, these essays make clear that this topic is worthy of investigation. A good addition to communication and mass media collections… Recommended."

—R. Davis, Choice

“An intriguing blend of the impacts of technology on culture, "Mobile Communication" is a fine read, a core addition to any sociology and technology collections, very much recommended reading.”
