Providing the most comprehensive, international and interdisciplinary analysis yet of the relationships between cities, urban life and new technologies, this informative book incorporates detailed discussions of cybercity history, theory, economic processes, mobilities, physical forms, social and cultural worlds, digital divides, public domains, strategies, politics and futures.

The book includes coverage of post modern technoculture, virtual reality and the body, global city economies, urban surveillance, e-commerce, teleworking, community informatics, digital architecture, urban technology strategies, and the role of cities and new technologies in the 'war on terrorism'.

The first interdisciplinary book to address the complex interrelationships between the use and application of electronic technologies and practices and processes of contemporary metropolitan life, this key text adopts a uniquely international perspective. Detailed case studies include 'virtual cities' in Amsterdam, Internet cabins in Lima, back offices in Jamaica, and 'smart' highways in Melbourne.

An excellent teaching aid with part, section and individual extract introductions, this outstanding book provides an up-to-date snapshot of how policies for cities and cyberspaces are being combined across the world.

About the Author:

Stephen Graham is Professor of Urban Technology at the Global Urban Research Unit in Newcastle University's School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape. He is co-author of Telecommunications and the City and Splintering Urbanism, both published by Routledge, and co-editor of Managing Cities.

Review:

"In gathering together classic and contemporary papers, this volume reveals urban landscapes as simultaneously reflective and constitutive of the digital world, illustrates the powerful ways in which cyberspace is shot through with social categories of class, power, gender, and ethnicity, and renders obsolete artificial dualisms such as on-line and off-line." - Barney Warf, Florida State University
