The contemporary period has witnessed the rapid evolution in a wide range of mobile technology. This book charts the profound implications these technological changes have for workers and business organizations. From an organizational point of view they have the potential to transform the nature of organizations, through allowing workers to be increasingly mobile. From the perspective of workers these changes have the potential to impact on their work-related communications, how they manage the increasingly blurred public-private divide, and the nature of the home-work boundary.

These chapters provide a detailed insight into these issues through bringing together an international collection of contemporary studies and analysis and taking a critical perspective towards some of the advertised myths regarding mobile technology usage. Issues covered include:

Travel and changing nature of spatial mobility patterns.

Work-Space and Place and the `leaking' out of organizations into more public domains.

Mobile Work Practices including detailed and heterogeneous case studies.

Home-work dynamics and the changing nature of the home-work boundary.

Implications for Public Policy
