9780761940432: Manuel Castells (SAGE Masters in Modern Social Thought series)

These volumes bring together major critical responses to, and engagement with, the work of Manuel Castells. Arguably the leading analyst of the current age, Castells' magnum opus, The Information Age, has been compared to the work of Karl Marx and Max Weber. His concept of `the network society' has influenced much recent social science and his ideas have been adopted in political and policy circles.

The volumes provide an unparalleled guide to the work of Castells. They demonstrate the roots of his thinking in Marxism and the shifts in his perspective. The selection if based along two principles: the chronological development of his thought and the sequence of his major publications.

Included here are critical engagements with Castells' work on the urban question, the city and grassroots; Marxism; the Information Age; the network society; power and identity; the new economy; and the sociology of social movements.

Volume 1: Marxism, France and `The Urban Question' to `The City and the Grassroots'

Review:

'The editors have put together a rich and versatile collection of reviews and

essays around the thirty years of scholarship by this incredibly prolific

writer. There is praise but also criticism like on most scholars. What is

remarkable with Manuel Castells, and with this collection, is the fact that

the agenda setting hits the core of (post)modern world and its scientific

study. These volumes do not only serve as a guide to Castells but also as a

reading of the state of the art of modern sociology' - Kaarle Nordenstreng, University of Tampere, Finland
