Mobile Communication and Greater China (Paperback): Rodney Wai-Chi Chu, Leopoldina Fortunati, Pui-Lam Law, Shanhua Yang Mobile Communication and Greater China (Paperback)
Rodney Wai-Chi Chu, Leopoldina Fortunati, Pui-Lam Law, Shanhua Yang
R882 Discovery Miles 8 820 Out of stock

This edited volume is the first book-length study focusing entirely on mobile phone use in China. Drawing on examples from a wide range of contemporary situations in China and beyond, the contributors argue that the mobile phone is in fact an important means by which one can understand a rapidly changing China, and the developing culture of mobile phone usage reflects both the cultural norms and struggle of the people. Through a theoretical comparison of usage in the West and in China, the editors assert the uniqueness of China's experience, highlighting that Chinese society is being exposed simultaneously to a rapid process of industrialization and cyberization. The contributors maintain that such density of experience under a compressed period combined with a thick cultural heritage and a country still under a dictating rule provides a unique situation and offers deep insights into Chinese culture in general. This work will be of great interest to all students and scholars of Asian communication studies, ICT and Chinese culture and society.
