Abstract

Based on the working hypothesis ‘that the most fundamental form of power lies in the ability to shape the human mind’ (3), Castells’ latest book investigates the workings of power in the network society. Although a welcome addition to the Information Age trilogy, the analytical framework of the book includes some flaws and blind spots that derive mainly from Castells’ view of communication.
