Information Age Series
There is a growing interest in the general audience, as well as in universities around the world, on the relationships between information technology and economic, social, geographic and political change. Indeed, these new relationships are transforming our social, economic, and cultural landscape. Social sciences are called upon to understand this emerging society. Yet, to be up to the task social sciences must renew themselves, in their analytical tools and in their research topics, while preserving their scholarly quality. The Information Age Series is the 'Nasdaq' of the social sciences - the Series that introduces the topics, the findings and many of the authors that are redefining the field. The books cover a variety of disciplines: geography, sociology, anthropology, economics, political science, history, philosophy, information sciences, communication.. They are grounded on original, rigorous research and present what we really know about the Information Age. Together, the books in The Information Age series aim at marking a turn in the academic literature on information technology and society.
