What People are Saying About This

John Agnew

I consider this book the most insightful discussion of place and technology I have encountered over the past twenty years of thinking about place and its role in modern society. . . . I think that it will create an intellectual stir and give a significant boost to scholarship bringing together social science and the design professions.
