[via RCCS] a diverse new set of book reviews for may 2006:

Andoni Alonso and Iñaki Arzoz, Basque Cyberculture: From Digital Euskadi to Cybereuskalherria (University of Nevada, Reno: Center for Basque Studies, 2006).
    Reviewed by Loykie Lominé, who works at the University of Winchester (England) where he is Programme Director for the MA in Cultural and Arts Management.

i really like the diversity in topics (basque cyberculture, bio media, internet ethics) and in nationalities of reviewer and reviewed (england, india, norway, spain, and the US).
