Summary
"Virtual Geographies explores how new communication technologies are being used to produce new geographies and new types of space. Leading contributors from a wide range of disciplines including geography, sociology, philosophy and literature investigate how visions of cyberspace have been constructed and offer a critical assessment of the status of virtual environments and geographies. Leading contributors set recent technological developments in both a historical and geographical perspective to offer a clearer view of the prospect ahead." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0649/98030450-d.html
