This issue's reviews run the gamut from books about the nuts and bolts of teaching written expression for hypertext environments to the role public policy assumes in shaping communication infrastructures. Some reviewers ask, "What are the economic and social pressures affecting these choices?" Others delineate constructivist learning theory in online pedagogy and critically examine implications of electronic portfolios for students, faculty, and institutional assessment of growth. The language of new media, too, is portrayed "as a parallel history of images and the machines which produce them." These reviews are designed to help instructors, administrators, and instructional technologists consider specific books. But they're also designed to help you think about many of the issues these books raise.

We'd like to extend a special thanks to Cindy Wambeam and Michael Day for their editorial support with the Review's Section of Kairos 7.1, as well as with the last few issues. Thanks!
