This lively and engaging text introduces students to the major debates and data on the information society, and at the same time teaches them how to research it. It gives an overview of:

* theorists of the information society, particularly Manuel Castells and Daniel Bell
* social research methodologies, including positivist, interpretivist, critical and cultural
* qualitative and quantitative research methods and criteria for social science evaluation.

Drawing on a rich body of empirical work, it explores three core themes of information society debates: the transformation of culture through the information revolution, changing patterns of work and employment and the reconfiguration of time and space in everyday life. In exploring these, the reader is introduced through case-studies, activities, and questions for discussion, to the practicalities of doing social research and the nature of social science argument and understanding.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I whole-heartedly welcome this text. I believe that the combination of the concept of an information society, and tools for investigating it as a social scientist will prove its distinctive quality and will contribute enormously to its success."
-Professor Frank Webster, University of Birmingham
