From the Back Cover:

Web search engines have emerged as one of the dominant technologies of modern life, leaving few aspects of our everyday activities untouched. Search engines are not just indispensable tools for finding and accessing information online, but have become a defining component of the human condition and can be conceptualized as a complex behavior embedded within an individual's everyday social, cultural, political, and information-seeking activities.

This book investigates Web search from the non-technical perspective, bringing together chapters that represent a range of multidisciplinary theories, models, and ideas about Web searching. They examine the various roles and impacts of Web searching on the social, cultural, political, legal, and informational spheres of our lives, such as the impact on individuals, social groups, modern and postmodern ways of knowing, and public and private life. By critically examining the issues, theories, and formations arising from, and surrounding, Web searching, Web Search: Multidisciplinary Perspectives represents an important contribution to the emerging multidisciplinary body of research on Web search engines.

The new ideas and novel perspectives on Web searching gathered in this volume will prove valuable for research and curricula in the fields of social sciences, communication studies, cultural studies, information science, and related disciplines.

Review:

Aus den Rezensionen:

"... Unter bewusster Ausklammerung rein technischer Sichtweisen wird das Phänomen der Suchmaschinen ... aus verschiedenen gesellschaftsorientierten Perspektiven in den Blick genommen. ... Insgesamt bietet der Band einen gehaltvollen Überblick über die Vielfalt der aktuellen Ansätze der Suchmaschinenforschung. Das Niveau der Beiträge ist durchgehend hoch ... Angesichts der Vielzahl der unterschiedlichen fachspezifischen Perspektiven ist es den Herausgebern hoch anzurechnen, dass sie ... Bezüge zwischen den Beiträgen herstellen ... Nicht zuletzt durch diesen systematisierenden Ansatz stellt der Band einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Weiterentwicklung dieses ... Forschungsfelds dar ..." (Theo Röhle, in: M&K - Medien und kommunikationswissenschaft, 2009, Vol. 57, Issue 1, S. 82 ff.)
