Pressestimmen

"Those interested in knowing more about occupations at an individual or societal level will learn much from this book, which offers a wide and forward--looking sociological perspective." Journal of Occupational Science "This is a bold, innovative work; a powerful study that attests to the cultural construction of the virtual and 'real' self in an often terrifying post--industrial world. Ben Agger is America's leading sociological theorist in the critical school tradition. Classical and contemporary sociological theory ignored the issues he addresses in this book: namely how the self is embedded in technology. Agger corrects this oversight, and in the process has written a book that belongs on the shelf of all serious students of self, the media, culture, and the organization of everyday life." -- Norman K. Denzin, University of Illinois at Urbana--Champaign "The Virtual Self explores the many challenges posed by 'virtuality' for ethical, political, and social analysis. Agger mobilizes a wide--ranging style of intertextual criticism that engagingly illustrates why virtual selves and network societies must become a new focus for contemporary social research. His accessible approach and conversational style make this an ideal book for courses in several different disciplines." -- Timothy W. Luke, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
