Bucy (Indiana U.) refers to the information and entertainment industries as an "ecology," and here examines that ecology's technological, social, psychological, and professional aspects. Forty-seven essays take into consideration the dot.com bust of 2000, and the media merger busts, terrorist attacks, and the Patriot Act, and discuss theories in information and entertainment, configurations in mass media, the social impacts of technologies in information and communication (especially equal access), and ethical issues in intellectual property and personal privacy. Many essays include bibliographies, and Bucy provides related links and sources of further research. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
