Description - The Information Society Reader by Raimo Blom
There has been much debate over the idea of 'the information society'. Some thinkers have argued that information is becoming the key ordering principle in society, whereas others suggest that the rise of information has been overstated. Whatever the case, though, it cannot be denied that 'informization' has produced vast changes in advanced societies. The Information Society Reader pulls together the main contributions to this debate from some of the key figures in the field. Major topics addressed include: post-industrialism surveillance transformations the network society democracy digital divisions virtual relations. With a comprehensive introduction from Frank Webster, and section introductions contextualising the readings, The Information Society Reader will be an invaluable resource for students and academics studying contemporary society and all things cyber. Includes selections from Manuel Castells, Daniel Bell, Anthony Giddens, Michel Foucault and Christopher Lasch, amongst others.
