This first book in Castells' groundbreaking trilogy, with a substantial new preface, highlights the economic and social dynamics of the information age and shows how the network society has now fully risen on a global scale. Groundbreaking volume on the impact of the age of information on all aspects of society Includes coverage of the influence of the internet and the net-economy 5/5(1).

This book, the first in Castells' ground-breaking trilogy, is an account of the economic and social dynamics of the new age of information. Based on research in the USA, Asia, Latin America, and Europe, it aims to formulate a systematic theory of the information society which takes account of the fundamental effects of information technology on the contemporary world/5(7).

In Runaway World, Giddens provocatively argues that globalization has led to the creation of a “global risk society.” According to Giddens, human social and economic activities, especially in modernity, produce various risks such as pollution, crime, new illnesses, food shortages, market crashes, wars, etc., and societies have become more responsible for managing these risks that their activities.

The first conclusion of this book is that modern society is in a process of becoming a network society. This means that on the internet interpersonal, organizational, and mass communication come together.

People become linked to one another and have access to information and communication with one another constantly. In a substantial new preface to the first volume in the series, Castells demonstrates, in the light of major world trends, how the network society has now fully risen on a global scale.

The book discusses how the global economy is now characterized by the almost instantaneous flow and exchange of information, capital, and cultural by: Drawing on extensive evidence, they examine how the move to networked individualism has expanded personal relationships beyond households and neighborhoods; transformed work into less hierarchical, more team-driven enterprises; encouraged individuals to create and share content; and changed the way people obtain information.

The network society is a hypersocial society, not a society of isolation. People, by and large, do not fake their identity in the Internet, except for some teenagers experimenting with their lives. Often computer networks and social networks work conjointly, with computer networks linking people in social networks and with people bringing their offline situations to bear when they use computer networks to interact.

The intersection of computer networks with the emerging networked society has fostered several exciting by:   Slide New assets Much like the industrial age, the Networked Society represents a fundamental paradigm shift for people, business, and society. The key enablers of growth and innovation come not from the physical assets and infrastructures themselves, but from the people, platforms and insights that are leveraged to reinvent them.

Global society does not have to be defined, however, in this way.
