High-tech Fantasies by Doreen Massey

Book Description

Science parks are becoming established in increasing numbers in almost all parts of the world. Promoted as places on the frontiers of science where a new breed of scientist-entrepreneur invents a new future, extolled as high-status workplaces where a new style of employee and flexible labour process is in the making, they are seen as the potential saviours of local and national economies. High-Tech Fantasies criticises the divisive hype of science parks arguing that both the theory and practice are unproductive for the economy and for any socially progressive science and technology. Questioning responsibility, innovation and symbolism, the authors explore the mutual determination of society, science and space.

Books By Author Doreen Massey

World City by Doreen Massey World City, Paperback (August 2007)

Cities around the world are striving to be global. This new book by Doreen Massey sets the global city in its broader geographical and political context. World City tells this story through London, one of the greatest of these global cities asking the question that should be asked of any city: what does this place stand for?.

For Space by Doreen Massey For Space, Paperback (February 2005)

Presenting an impassioned argument for revitalising our imagination of space, Doreen Massey takes on some well-established assumptions from philosophy, and some familiar ways of characterising the twenty-first century world, and shows how they restrain our understanding of both the challenge and the potential of space.

Unsettling Cities by Doreen Massey Unsettling Cities, Paperback (February 1999)

This text offers a way of understanding the global nature of cities, where their very openness has served to shape their dynamism and character. It explores the mix of proximity and difference that exists in the rich and diverse texture of city life.
