"The Berkshire Encyclopedia of Human-Computer Interaction is the first encyclopedia solely dedicated to the topic... The entries provide highly readable general overviews and useful bibliographies... Authoritative overviews of wide-ranging topics, gathered in one convenient resource, will appeal to general readers. Recommended for public libraries and undergraduate collections." - Library Journal "An invaluable resource for students and professionals--and we will live and work better for having it at our elbow." - Paul Duguid, co-author with John Seely Brown of The Social Life of Information. "From collaboration editors to cyborgs, I never knew there was so much to know about human-computer interfaces!" - Mark Fischetti co-author of Weaving the Web and contributing editor, Scientific American "Works like the [groundbreaking] Berkshire Encyclopedia of Human-Computer Interaction play a valuable role in lending definition to emerging, interdisciplinary fields of study. The articles are scholarly and informed, while at the same time, accessible... With interest in this field predicted to grow, both public and academic libraries will want to give this encyclopedia serious consideration." - Against the Grain "This encyclopedia, edited by the deputy director of the National Science Foundation's Division of Information and Intelligent Systems, compiles 186 articles on the maturing field of human-computer interaction (HCI)... Figures, tables, and photos are clear and aid understanding... This resource provides unique content not found in conventional encyclopedias on computers... It should be useful in academic and larger public libraries." - Booklist "This rich two-volume reference presents the history and current state of research for a broad range of topics. Written by experts in the field, the articles are lengthy; but the content is directed toward educated general readers and will be useful to undergraduate students. The broad themes of methods, challenges, interfaces, components, breakthroughs, and approaches are addressed in articles on such topics as avatars, browsers, data mining [and more]. Each article concludes with a list of references. Appendices comprise a bibliography, a glossary, and a list of books, movies, and other popular media representations of HCI." - SciTech Book NewsReseña del editor:
The Berkshire Encyclopedia of Human-Computer Interaction takes computing into new realms, introducing us to topics that are intriguing both in their technical complexity and because they present us - human beings - with a set of challenging questions about our relationship with "thinking" machines. There are opportunities and risks in any new technology, and HCI has intrigued writers for many decades because it leads us to a central philosophical, religious, and even historical question: What does it mean to be human?
