         Subject: new book on Virtual Ethnicity


Where is the ethnic minority presence in cyberspace? In this book, Linda
Leung makes a pioneering exploration of ethnic minority presence in
cyberspace. She finds that despite the apparent white, Western, male, middle
class profile of cyberspace, there is significant ethnic minority activity.
The work draws on the author's empirical research amongst ethnic minority
women and incorporates discussion of media and web-texts from the US,
Canada, Britain and Australia. This is a fascinating interdisciplinary
examination of the web-participation of ethnic communities, which sheds
light on how ethnic identities are articulated in cyberspace and
contemporary society in both predictable and surprising ways.
