Description - Investigating Information Society by Hugh Mackay
This lively and engaging text introduces students to the major debates and data on the information society and at the same time teaches them how to research it. It gives an overview of: theorists of the information society social research methodologies, including positivist, interpretivist, critical and cultural qualitative and quantitative research methods and criteria for social science evaluation. Drawing on a rich body of empirical work, it explores three core themes of information society debates: the transformation of culture through the information revolution, changing patterns of work and employment and the reconfiguration of time and space in everyday life. In exploring these, the reader is introduced through case studies, activities, and questions for discussion, to the practicalities of doing social research and the nature of social science argument and understanding.
