Summary
"The Web has been with us for less than a decade. The popular and commercial diffusion of the Internet has been extraordinary -- instigating and enabling changes in virtually every area of human activity and society. We have new systems of communication, new businesses, new media and sources of information, new forms of political and cultural expression, new forms of teaching and learning, and new communities. This indispensable book, written by the leading analyst in the field, draws upon an extraordinary range of detailed evidence and research to answer questions of relevance to us all, such as: How has the Internet affected social and cultural organization, political participation and communication, and urban living? How is it shaping old and new business organizations? What are the realities of the digital divide? Manuel Castells helps us to understand what is happening and how the Internet has become the medium of the new network society. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
