Editorial Reviews


It is splendid and will become mandatory reading on my courses at Berkeley. I am sure it is going to become a classic.
–Manuel Castells, University of California, Berkeley

...a tour de force. The authors show by example that electronics has not made clear thinking obsolete or unnecessary. If you want an idea of what may be going on with current technologies in cities, this is the book to buy and read.
Planning Magazine

Any geographer seriously interested in the future of urban settlement in the US or across the world will gain much from a careful reading of this book...crisp, clear, and engaging.
Professional Geographer

...a book worth absorbing by all who have an interest in what our cities will look like in the second half of the 21st century.
Habitat Magazine The book demonstrates the importance and the possibility of careful theoretical reflection...[It] allows the reader to make sense of diverse and competing arguments in new ways.

Format: Paperback
This book is like a bronseal advert, it does what it says on the tin. the authours have given a indepth look at life in a city in terms of communications. the reason i have now bought this book is that i have read the social and cultural impacts of communications within a city, and now want to read the rest. the authors which for me gives the book real zeal is that their writings are de-viod of utopian or distopian views and keep to real facts. im sorry my review is not of a professional nature, but i recommend this book to anyone in studies at degree level or anyone interested in the way a whole city operates purley by communications albeit internet, phone or any ohter communication. a must buy.
