The Geography of the Internet Industry Reviews

This book is a welcome addition to the burgeoning literature on the geography of the information society ... The parallels drawn to related booms and busts of earlier eras demonstrate that the novelty of the 'new' economy is as mythical as the 'end' of geography in the information age. Eric Sheppard, University of Minnesota


Traces the Internet industry from its beginnings ... the best picture yet of the Internet boom of the 1990s, its decline in 2000 and 2001, and its stability and slower growth since. Edward J. Malecki, The Ohio State University


An authoritative and engaging account of contemporary urban-regional economic development in the information age, that has real explanatory power much like Jean Gottmann's Megalopolis had in the 1960s. The Geography of the Internet Industry deserves a place on the reading lists of anyone serious about understanding the recent past of the Internet. Martin Dodge, University College London

I urge everyone who has a chance to read this book because it is fluent and well constructed, especially given that it is based on a thesis. Unlike most theses, the joins do not show, and this makes for an exciting journey through its pages.
Michael Batty
