Altheide's new book advances the argument set in motion some
years ago with Media Logic and continued in Media Worlds in the
Postjournalism Era: that in our age, information technology and the
communication environments it posits have affected the private and
the social spheres of all our power relationships, redefining the
ground rules for social life and concepts such as freedom and
Articulated through an interactionist and non-deterministic
focus, An Ecology of Communication offers a distinctive perspective
for understanding the impact of information technology,
communication formats, and social activities in the new electronic
environment. As more routines, rituals, and activities incorporate
such technologies within their organizational cultures, new sorts
of activities are added and previous ones are changed according to
an underlying logic explored in these pages. Various chapters
illustrate some of these altered and redefined organizational
cultures: bureaucracy, the mass media, computer formats, war,
surveillance, and testing, among others.
