From the Publisher"The most compelling attempt yet made to map the contours of the global information age." Anthony Giddens, New Statesman.
"A superlative achievement. Castells has succeeded in producing a study that positively invites comparison with Marx. As Marx in Capital sought to analyze the operation and social tensions of early industrial capitalism, so Castells in his trilogy aims to understand the system, global informational capitalism, that is replacing it. He has thus set himself the ultimate challenge; the confirmation is already to hand that he has met it." Peter Hall, Cities.
"Not since Weber has there been such a determined and largely successful effort to bring to bear the results and analytical perspectives of all the social sciences on the evolution of society. It is to be hoped that his book will be read by social scientists of all kinds, but especially by economists since they, probably more than anyone else, need to be reminded that Max Weber was a professor of economics." Chris Freeman, New Political Economy.
"A magnum opus if ever there was one, these three books together constitute, in my view, the finest piece of contemporary social analysis for at least a generation." Frank Webster, British Journal of Sociology.
