as described on the backmatter:

This handbook, the first of its kind, is a 
detailed introduction to the numerous academic 
perspectives we can apply to the study of the 
internet as a political, social and communicative 
phenomenon. Covering both practical and 
theoretical angles, established researchers from 
around the world discuss everything: the 
foundations of internet research appear alongside 
chapters on understanding and analyzing current 
examples of online activities and artifacts. The 
material covers all continents and explores in 
depth subjects such as networked gaming, 
economics and the law.

The sheer scope and breadth of topics examined in 
this volume, which ranges from on-line 
communities to e-science via digital aesthetics, 
are evidence that in today's world, internet 
research is a vibrant and mature field in which 
practitioners have long since stopped considering 
the internet as either an utopian or dystopian 
"new" space, but instead approach it as a medium 
that has become an integral part of our everyday 
culture and a natural mode of communication.

(I don't know if it was the first of the kind 
published, but I think it was the first done this 
way -jh)
