Description :
World of Warcraft is currently the most popular online world game on the planet. Bonnie Nardi, a well-known ethnographer who has published extensively on how theories of what we do intersect with how we adopt and use technology, compiles more than three years of participatory research in Warcraft play and culture in the United States and China into this field study of player behavior and activity.

With digitalculturebooks , the University of Michigan Press publishes innovative work in new media studies and digital humanities. We began in 2006 as a partnership between MLibrary and the Press, taking advantage of the skills and expertise of staff throughout Michigan Publishing . Our primary goal is to be an incubator for new publishing models in the humanities and social sciences.

"Nardi's study is very important for the discoveries to which it leads about play, performance, and human social life in general."
