"Castells provides a careful and closely-argued exposition. This is the book to read to find out ... how the space economy of the United States is being reshaped. Castells describes in compelling detail a burgeoning sphere of communication flows which is transforming organisations, work, and individual lives." Nigel Thrift, New Statesman and Society
"The Informational City is one of [Castells] most important works. In it he presents an impressive synthesis drawing on the results of a large number of research studies ... Castells has managed simultaneously to provide the best available summary of the best studies on the new regional industrial structure of the USA, and a set of thought-provoking essays about the deep structure of the information technology revolution and neo-conservative economic policies. The book will be of use to teachers and researchers alike." Ian Miles, University of Sussex
"This book is provocative and relatively easy to read. The author presents a convincing case for the dawn of an informational age that promises to complicate capitalist social organization." Growth and Change
