The importance of sociological and anthropological contibutions to the design of human-computer interfaces has recently become recognised. Human-computer interfaces range from interfaces for single users to computer supported co-operative work. The Social and Interactional Dimensions of Human-Computer Interfaces considers issues concerning interpersonal dynamics, cultural readings of technology, the organisational contexts of technology, and the 'situated' nature of use and the processes of design. It is an unusual volume in that it covers theory, methodology and applications in depth. Researchers, designers, and graduate students concerned with the social implications of computers will find this book compelling reading.
