 Nexus Analysis introduces a new and exciting theory by two of the
 leading names in discourse analysis and provides a practical
 field-guide to its application.
 People, places, discourses and objects form the key elements of
 social action.  'Nexus analysis' allows participants to explore these 
 elements and trace their historical trajectories towards actions, in
 order to anticipate the outcomes of these actions.
 Using as a study their own experience of pioneering computer-mediated 
 communication in Alaska in the late 70s and early 80s, the authors
 conduct a nexus analysis of the events and discourses of the time. As 
 the birth of email and audio / video conferencing technologies
 expanded the possibilities for education and social interaction, the
 authors played an active role in shaping its use and analysing its
 effect. Looking back on this time now and on the huge impact that
 these technologies have had on our world as we know it today, they
 assess moments of social importance in orde
