   schema:description "In exploring this new reflexive world, Lash and Urry argue that today's economies are increasingly economies of signsinformation, symbols, images, desire - and of space, where both signs and social subjects - refugees, financiers, tourists, flaneurs - are mobile over ever greater distances. They show how an understanding of such flows contributes to the analysis of changes in social relations, from the organization of work to the 'culture industries', from the formation of an underclass to new forms of citizenship. Taking its point of departure from the authors' influential The End of Organized Capitalism, this is a book that no one in social and cultural theory, geography and urban studies, political economy, and organization studies can afford to ignore."@en ;

In this extraordinary and wide-ranging book, two eminent theorists develop a sociology that takes as its main unit of analysis social and cultural flows through time and across space.

Through a comparative analysis of the UK and USA, Germany and Japan, Lash and Urry show how restructuration after organized capitalism has its basis in increasingly reflexive social actors and organizations. The consequence is not only the much-vaunted 'postmodern condition' but a growth in reflexivity."@en ;
