The death of the book has been duly announced, and with it the end of brick-and-mortar libraries, traditional publishers, linear narrative, authorship, and disciplinarity, along with the emergence of a more equitable discursive order. These essays suggest that it won't be that simple. The digitization of discourse will not be effected without some wrenching social and cultural dislocations.
The contributors to this volume are enthusiastic about the possibilities created by digital technologies, instruments that many of them have played a role in developing and deploying. But they also see the new media raising serious critical issues that force us to reexamine basic notions about rhetoric, reading, and the nature of discourse itself.

Geoffrey Nunberg is a research scientist at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center and a professor of Linguistics at Stanford University.From Library Journal:
In his introduction to The Future of the Book, editor Nunberg (linguistics, Stanford Univ.) says there has been extremism among both technology lovers and haters. "Ultimately," he writes, "the technologies cannot themselves determine how or where they will be deployed. This is left for us to decide." This work consists of 11 scholarly papers by mostly academics presented at a recent conference. Contributors include Nunberg, Carla Hesse, James O'Donnell, Paul Duguid, Nunberg, Regis Debray, and Patrick Brazin. The presenters take a variety of approaches to the ways, rates, and degrees to which the computer might kill the book., e.g., historical, philosophical, and inguistic. No author rejects computers or sees their takeover as complete and immediate. An index is needed. Of primary interest to academic libraries.
