We are often told that we are 'living in an information society' or that we are 'information workers'. But what exactly do these claims mean, and how might they be verified? In this important methodological study, Alistair Duff cuts through the rhetoric to get to the bottom of the 'information society thesis'. Wide-ranging in coverage, this study will be of interest to scholars in information. taken the ‘information society’ idea to their hearts, with the European Union urging the rapid adjustment to a ‘global information society’, thereby following in the tracks of Japan which embraced the concept of information society in the early s (Duff, ). Just what sense to make of this has been a source of controversy. Pervasive media, expanding information occupations and the development of the internet convince many that living in an Information Society is the destiny of us all. Coping in an era of information flows, of virtual relationships and breakneck change poses challenges to one and all.
