Space is central to our lives. Because of this, much attention is directed at understanding and explaining the geographic world. Mapping Cyberspace is a groundbreaking 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.

Reviews for Mapping Cyberspace

'Mapping Cyberspace is an important pioneering work. The authors have performed a valuable service and have produced an essential reference for anyone seriously interested in the spatial, social, economic and cultural implications of telecommunications infrastructure and cyberspace.' - William J Mitchell, Environment and Planning 'The book provides a clear and broad introduction to major theoretical. Methodical, and empirical issues related to cyberspace research. Mapping Cyberspace is a critical first stop for any researcher interested in contributing new knowledge in this exciting emerging field.' - Joshua Lepawsky, University of Kentucky for Cultural Geographies
