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 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.

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
