<nettime> New Book Reviews in Cyberculture Studies

Each month, the Resource Center for Cyberculture Studies (RCCS) 
<> publishes two full-length book reviews. The reviews
reflect a modest attempt to locate critically various contours of the
emerging and interdisciplinary field of cyberculture studies. To date,
RCCS has reviewed over 60 books, covering a range of topics, from online
culture, communities, and identities to hypertext, digital literacy, and
artificial intelligence to Internet policy, the digital divide, and online

This month, RCCS features a special treat.  We begin with *three* separate
reviews (by Richard Barbrook, Arthur L. Morin, and Graham J. Murphy) of
Pierre Levy's *Collective Intelligence: Mankind's Emerging World in
Cyberspace* (Plenum Trade, 1997), followed by an original essay in English
from Levy himself.  Next up are two separate reviews (by Maren Hartmann
and EJM Duggan) of Paul Taylor's *Hackers: Crime in the Digital Sublime*
(Routledge, 1999), accompanied by an engaging rejoinder from Paul Taylor. 

Forthcoming books to be reviewed include Lawrence Lessig's *Code and Other
Laws of Cyberspace* and "Machine Modulations: New Cultural Theory &
Technopolitics," a special issue of *Angelaki*, edited by John Armitage.
