  • Description

This book explores the wired world at the beginning of the new century and traces the development of the idea of a post-industrial or knowledge-driven economy, and the post-modern or information society that emerges from it. It considers the work of sociologists, economists, and information scientists who have theorized this radical change, tracing the development and impact of the technologies of information, and how information is transmitted from source to recipient.
