Space is central to our lives. Because of this, much attention is directed at understanding and explaining the geographic world. Mapping Cyberspace is a ground-breaking book, which extends this analysis to provide a geographic exploration and critical reading of Cyberspace and information and communication technologies. Mapping Cyberspace: * provides an understanding of what cyberspace looks like and the social interactions that take place there; * explores the impacts of cyberspace, and information and communication technologies, on cultural, political and economic relations; * charts the spatialities, spatial forms and space-time relations of virtual spaces: * details empirical research and examines a wide variety of maps and spatialisations of cyberspace and the information society; * has a related website at http://www MappingCyberspace.com Mapping Cyberspace draws together the findings and theories of researchers from geography, cartography, sociology, cultural studies, computer-mediated communications, information visualisation, literary theory and cognitive psychology. It is highly illustrated with 50 black and white plates and a colour plate section.
This book will be a valuable addition to the growing body of literature on cyberspace and what it means for the future.
