  • "Seit seinem ersten Erscheinen 1996 in Amerika hat die Trilogie "Das Informationszeitalter" einen beispiellosen Siegeszug durch die wissenschaftlich interessierte Leserschaft genommen. Die Soziologie erkennt in Manuel Castells den kompetentesten und eigenständigsten Analysten und Deuter der Weltgesellschaft. (Band I: Der Aufstieg der Netzwerkgesellschaft; Band II: Die Macht der Identität; Band III: Jahrtausendwende Im zweiten Band seiner Trilogie zeigt Castells die beiden großen einander entgegen gesetzten Trends in unserer Welt: Globalisierung und Identität. Die Revolution der Informationstechnologie und die Erneuerung des Kapitalismus haben die Netzwerkgesellschaft begründet, gekennzeichnet durch die global agierende Wirtschaft, durch Flexibilisierung und Unsicherheit von Arbeit und durch eine Kultur der "realen Virtualität". Aber daneben schafft sich kollektive Identität machtvoll Ausdruck. Sie stemmt sich gegen die Globalisierung und beharrt auf kultureller Eigenständigkeit, auf Selbstbestimmung über Leben und Umwelt. Castells beschreibt und analysiert Ursprünge, Ziele und Wirkungen übergreifender Bewegungen wie Feminismus und Ökologie ebenso wie begrenzter Bewegungen, die sich auf Religion, Nation, Ethnie oder Familie beziehen."
  • ""A little over a decade since its first publication, the hypotheses set out in Manuel Castells' groundbreaking trilogy have largely been verified. In a substantial new preface to the first volume in the series, Castells demonstrates, in the light of major world trends, how the network society has now fully risen on a global scale. The book discusses how the global economy is now characterized by the almost instantaneous flow and exchange of information, capital, and cultural communication. These flows order and condition both consumption and production. The networks themselves reflect and create distinctive cultures. Both they and the traffic they carry are largely outside national regulation. Our dependence on the new modes of informational flow gives enormous power to those in a position to control them to control us. The main political arena is now the media, and the media are not politically answerable. Based on research in the USA, Asia, Latin America, and Europe, Castells, formulates a systematic theory of the information society and details the new social and economic developments brought by the Internet and the 'new economy'." -- from http://search.barnesandnoble.com (April 12, 2011)."

  • "This book is an account of the economic and social dynamics of the new age of information. Based on research in the USA, Asia, Latin America, and Europe, it aims to formulate a systematic theory of the information society which takes account of the fundamental effects of information technology on the contemporary world. The author describes the accelerating pace of innovation and application. He examines the processes of globalization that have marginalized and now threaten to make redundant whole countries and peoples excluded from informational networks. He investigates the culture, institutions and organizations of the network enterprise and the concomitant transformation of work and employment. He shows that in the advance economies production is now concentrated on an educated section of the population aged between 25 and 40: many economies can do without a third or more of their people. He suggests that the effect of this accelerating trend may not be mass unemployment but the extreme flexibilization of work and individualization of labor, and, in consequence, a highly segmented social structure. The author concludes by a examining the effects and implications of technological change on media culture ("the culture of real virtuality"), on urban life, global politics and the nature of time.
