DE BEEN Wouter, ARORA Payal, HILDEBRANDT Mireille (dir.)

Crossroads in New Media, Identity and Law. The Shape of Diversity to Come

London, Palgrave Macmillan, 2015, 264 p., £60.

This volume brings together a number of timely contributions at the nexus of new media, politics and law. The central intuition that ties these essays together is that information and communication technology, cultural identity, and legal and political institutions are spheres that co-evolve and interpenetrate in myriad ways. Discussing these shifting relationships, the contributions all probe the question of what shape diversity will take as a result of the changes in the way we communicate and spread information : that is, are we heading to the disintegration and fragmentation of national and cultural identity, or is society moving towards more consolidation, standardization and centralization at a transnational level ? In an age of digitization and globalization, this book addresses the question of whether this calls for a new civility fit for the 21st century.
