This is a review of the current and future consequences of the information revolution. It draws on an international authorship, as well as members of the Georgia Faculty Program on the Information Revolution. Porter and Read look at the implications of the revolution in five areas of human activity: business and financial capital; the workplace and human capital; academia and publishing; politics, internationalism and citizenship; and the "information society", public and private. In a final section, predictions are offered as to how the information technology revolution will evolve in the future and how human society might continue to ride the IT wave and adapt in its wake.
