The Handbook of Research on Technoself: Identity in a Technological Society provides insights to better enhance the understanding of technology’s widespread intertwinement with human identity within an advancing technological society. This reference includes comprehensive coverage of the most vital issues, concepts, trends, and debates in technology and identity. It brings together an audience of researchers, scholars, students, and professionals alike.

Reviews and Testimonials

The target audience of this book is anyone interested in exploring or conducting research on technology and identity in the modern world. Graduate students, professors, and researchers in the fields of communication, sociology, psychology, robotics, and other related fields should consider this a thorough primer on the subject and an invaluable resource in beginning their own work in the field. It is one of few comprehensive resources in this burgeoning field and will likely remain indispensable as the field grows.
