Summary This book is an investigation of how contemporary "postmodern" cities and their inhabitants have been transformed by the forces of globalization and new information technologies. Drawing upon a wide range of discourses, from architectural theory and urban studies to psychoanalysis and Marxism, it explores this transformation through readings of contemporary literature, film, art, and real-world urban and cyber spaces
