Infrastructures in Practice

The Dynamics of Demand in Networked Societies

«

"This fascinating, innovative volume explores infrastructure in daily use in a rich variety of ways across different cultures. It furnishes a wonderful way into exploring the centrality of infrastructure to our lives."

- Geoffrey C. Bowker, Donald Bren Professor in Information and Computer Sciences, University of California, Irvine, US

"All too often analyses of infrastructures focus either on material networks and the services they deliver, or on how to deal with the growing demand for such services. The great merit of this book is to take a more nuanced view and put the co-development of everyday practices, the use of infrastructure-connected appliances and the materiality of infrastructure systems centre-stage."

- Harald Rohracher, Professor of Technology and Social Change, Linköping University, Sweden

"With an impressive range of cases, methods and perspectives, this book makes visible the different ways in which infrastructures ratchet up the demand for services and energy. The book offers an important way out of the impasse of the conventional separation of thinking about future demand and about the associated need for infrastructure. Instead it shows how infrastructure and demand co-evolve. It has important implications for how we select different pathways for the future."

- Greg Marsden, Professor of Transport Governance, Leeds Institute for Transport Studies, UK
