Manuel Castells is Professor of Sociology and Professor of City and Regional Planning at the University of California, Berkeley, and Professor of the Information Society at the Open Catalan University (UOC), in Barcelona. Martin Ince is a freelance journalist and contributing editor of the Times Higher Education Supplement where he was formerly deputy editor. This is his eighth book..
'These conversations ... provide a highly interesting commentary by Castells on his own phenomenon and a (very compact) tour d'horizon of his ideas about every current political and social issue and every continent.' Times Higher Education Supplement "...stimulating and such a constant source of pleasure. Castell shows himself here a commentator on the contemporary global scene of real insight and penetration."
