Comments Communication Power

  • Indra

    very broad but compelling discussion of some of social political impacts of global communications network. Another step in his project of building a communciations based theory of power. He is one of the most interesting political and social theorists writing on the implications of the internet


  • Gianluca

    Interessantissimo libro sui rapporti tra comunicazione e potere, l'uso degli scandali nelle campagne elettorali e il nuovo scenario del web in queste tematiche.


  • Eve

    Castells is certainly a character.


  • Consuelo

    Me lo zampé en cinco horas. Mi cerebro va a explotar.


  • Isaac Rojas

    Want to understand how politics work nowadays? Get yourself a big cup of coffee and Castells in gentle manner will show you with theory and how this is reflected in our daily lives under globalization and politics influence


  • Manuel

    I liked the thesis that is defended in its pages but unfortunately the book is written with an academic style that sometimes make it hard to follow. Even though I admire Castell's perspective about recent social movements and I agree with the main principles defended in this book, I find that reading Castell is harder than listening to him, so I prefer his interviews.


  • Antonio Jarnavic

    Es un libro de Castells y, como siempre, es interesante. Explica otra vez conceptos de La era de la información y se centra en el poder. muy interesante si te gusta la comunicación política.
