It is argued that the new media age has made image, rather than writing, the core of communication. Reckoning with communication, technological, social and economic factors, this book examines the impact of these changes on the future of literacy. It points to far-reaching shifts in terms of power in various spheres and to the democratic potentials of the new ICT-technologies.
