Review: "What is culture? What is the relation between social structure and culture in a globalized and networked world? Do critical perspectives still apply, or does the speed and complexity of cultural production demand new forms of analysis?" "In Spaces of Culture an international cast of scholars examines the implications of these questions for sociology and social theory. They explore the key themes in social theory: the nation state, the city, modernity, post-Fordism and the spatial logic of the informational city." "Spaces of Culture will be required reading for students and scholars in sociology, social theory and cultural studies. It will be an essential reference in any critical discussion of the relations between globalization and technology; and culture, politics and the public sphere."--Jacket.
