Product Description

Review

"Multidisciplinary in their perspectives, thoughtful in their analyses, and above all deeply and collaboratively engaged with the online world whereof they speak, the contributors to this 'World of Warcraft Reader' have fashioned not only a valuable introduction to one of the core texts of the new digital literacy but a working model of the most rewarding forms this emergent literacy may take."--Julian Dibbell, author of Play Money: Or How I Quit My Day Job and Made Millions Trading Virtual Loot "With its millions of users around the globe, World of Warcraft points to a future cyberspace far more fantastic and revolutionary than we had ever imagined: entire human societies immersed for thousands of hours in pursuit of fictional dragons. The essays in this book reveal the differences and similarities found in the human societies of World of Warcraft, explosive combinations that will shock our century as game worlds come to dominate daily life."--Edward Castronova, Indiana University -- Edward Castronova "The authors represent a new breed of academic scholar, researchers whodon't just study games, but play them as well. The essays reflect theirintimate knowledge of the game, the many hours logged into the digitalworld of Azeroth, and the deep love/hate relationship with World ofWarcraft that every player knows so well. Because they are in factplayers, the authors' joy and excitement for the game shines throughevery essay in the collection."--Eric Zimmerman, Co-Founder of Gamelab, and co-author of Rulesof Play, and The Game Design Reader -- Eric Zimmerman "It's a delight to read so many astute game studies scholars approach one game, in one volume. World of Warcraft Reader provides an invaluable comparative resource for the field."--Mary Flanagan, Department of Film and Media Studies, Hunter College, and co-editor of re: skin -- Mary Flanagan "It's a delight to read so many astute game studies scholars approach one game, in one volume.
