This book examines the interrelationship between the telecommunications and tourism in shaping the nature of space, place and the urban at the end of the twentieth century. They discuss how these agents are instrumental inthe production of homogenous world-spaces, and how these in turn presuppose new kinds of political and cultural identity. This work will be of essential interest to scholars and students in the fields of sociology, geography, cultural studies and media studies.
"This anthology, itself a globalizing attempt, provides a thoughtful walk through the contending complications and real virtuals of a world of increasing technicality and diminishing identity of culture and self. It is an excellent anthology that needs to be carefully read.."
