" In "The Digital Sublime," Vincent Mosco's elegant and nuanced analysis of our technological mythos demonstrates yet again the value of melding cultural studies and political economy." --Eileen Meehan, Lemuel Heidel Brown Chair in Media and Political Economy, Manship School of Mass Communication, Louisiana State University
" An often brilliant exegesis of how post-industrial thinking has come to occupy the heartland of consciousness, and of the wrenching social consequences that have attended this transition. A book that is moving, as well as erudite." --Dan Schiller, Professor of Library and Information Science, Communication, and Media Studies, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
" Witty, scholarly, and very readable, "The Digital Sublime" limns a skeptical yet sympathetic portrait of the cyberbubble of the 1990s within its technical, cultural and economic landscape. By framing it in the context of ancient and modern myths, Mosco deftly focuses for us a sharper image of our times." --Anthony G. Oettinger, Chairman, Program on Information Resources Policy, Harvard University
