Critical Reading and Writing in the Digital Age

Critical Reading and Writing in the Digital Age is a fully introductory, interactive textbook that explores the power relations at work in and behind the texts we encounter in our everyday lives.

a radically revised and repackaged section that highlights the theme of discourses of power and authority and the new possibilities for resisting them;
a revamped analysis of the art of communication which has changed due to the advent of new media including Facebook and Wikipedia;
fresh examples, exercises and case studies including fan fiction, articles from the BBC, Daily Mail and South China Morning Post, and a selection of international ads for a variety of products;
a brand new companion website at featuring projects, quizzes and activities for each chapter, a glossary and further reading.
