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 Readerpulls together the main contributions to this debate from some of the key figures in the field--Manuel Castells, Daniel Bell, Anthony Giddens, Michel Foucault and Christopher Lasch.. This authoritative anthology addresses a wide array of topics and issues, such as: Post-industrialism; Surveillance; Network Security; Digital Democracy; the Digital Divide; and Virtual Relations. With a comprehensive introduction from Frank Webster, and section introductions contextualising the readings,The Information Society Readerwill be an invaluable resource for students and academics studying contemporarysociety and all things cyber.
