"Societies and Cities in the Age of Instant Access provides a timely, broad, and richly detailed look at today's most important driving forces in the development and evolution of city life -- the advent of online and mobile information and communication technologies, and the widespread availability of access devices. Just as the railroad, automobile, the elevator transformed the shape of cities and the ways people conduct their urban lives in the 19th and 20th centuries, the Internet and the mobile telephone are driving far more rapid changes in the 21st century." Howard Rheingold
