I will open an graduate course on "Network and Society".
Through this course I would like to discuss about information society from
those treaditional scholars as Baniel Bell and Fritz Matchl upto the latest
ones who argued for information capitalism and congnitive capitalism. I
will  also introduce those scholars who give us deeper understanding as
Manuel Castells, Jan van Dijk, and Frank Webster.

I wonder if there is some textbook which can be usesd as a reference book
in this class. I am looking for the one that can serve us with more
balanced guideline between critical and positive approaches.

Many thanks in advance.
