  • This book is a natural progression from his 'Network Society' trilogy - a powerful, forward-looking analysis of communication in the Network Society

  • Draws on theories from across the social sciences: politics, sociology, psychology, communication studies, management studies
  • Rich and wide-ranging, including examples from the author's experience of Franco's Spain, the operation of global media companies, and Barack Obama's campaign
