Summary This book is a far-ranging but focused treatment of the cognitive and behavioural issues in computer-mediated communication, knowledge representation, and computer-supported co-operative work. It also develops the theoretical basis for treating computerised tools as intermediaries in the communication of mental maps between tool builders and tool users. Computers, Communication and Mental Models presents a collection of multidisciplinary papers, each of which sheds light on the complex interactions between users and systems architects, via a common medium: computerised tools
