Sunday Times History Book of the Year 2015 Currently filming for BBC programme Full Steam Ahead Britain's railways have been a vital part of national life for nearly 200 years. Transforming lives and landscapes, they have left their mark on everything from timekeeping to tourism. As a self-contained world governed by distinctive rules and traditions, the network also exerts a fascination all its own. From the classical grandeur of Newcastle station to the ceaseless traffic of Clapham Junction, from the mysteries of Brunel's atmospheric railway to the lost routines of the great marshalling yards, Simon Bradley explores the world of Britain's railways, the evolution of the trains, and the changing experiences of passengers and workers. The Victorians' private compartments, railway rugs and footwarmers have made way for air-conditioned carriages with airline-type seating, but the railways remain a giant and diverse anthology of structures from every period, and parts of the system are the oldest in the world. Using fresh research, keen observation and a wealth of cultural references, Bradley weaves from this network a remarkable story of technological achievement, of architecture and engineering, of shifting social classes and gender relations, of safety and crime, of tourism and the changing world of work. The Railways shows us that to travel through Britain by train is to journey through time as well as space.

How is the internet transforming the relationships between citizens and states? What happens to politics when international migration is coupled with digital media, making it easy for people to be politically active in a nation from outside its borders? In "Nation as Network," Victoria Bernal creatively combines media studies, ethnography, and African studies to explore this new political paradigm through a striking analysis of how Eritreans in diaspora have used the internet to shape the course of Eritrean history. Bernal argues that Benedict Anderson s famous concept of nations as imagined communities must now be rethought because diasporas and information technologies have transformed the ways nations are sustained and challenged. She traces the development of Eritrean diaspora websites over two turbulent decades that saw the Eritrean state grow ever more tyrannical. Through Eritreans own words in posts and debates, she reveals how new subjectivities are formed and political action is galvanized online. She suggests that infopolitics struggles over the management of information make politics in the 21st century distinct, and she analyzes the innovative ways Eritreans deploy the internet to support and subvert state power. "Nation as Network" is a unique and compelling work that advances our understanding of the political significance of digital media. "

This revised edition adds a substantial new chapter on "superconnectivity" (invented and defined in the unabridged edition of the Online Dictionary of the English Language, 2067) that reviews the developments of the last fifteen years and updates the authors' speculations about the future.Hiltz and Turoff highlight major current organizational, educational, and public applications of CMC, integrate their theoretical understanding of the impact of CMC technology, address ethical and legal issues, and describe a scenario in 2084. They have also added a selected bibliography on the key literature.Starr Roxanne Hiltz and Murray Turoff each hold the position of Professor of Computer and Information Sciences at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. They are also members of the faculty of the Graduate School of Business at Rutgers University, Newark.

"This thesis research examined the implementation of the Ktunaxa Nation network and explored its ongoing use and development. The Ktunaxa Nation is comprised of four Aboriginal communities in south-eastern British Columbia, Canada. The Nation established internet infrastructure throughout the communities primarily to enable the dissemination of the Ktunaxa language of which there are only 24 speakers remaining. The purpose of this research was to examine the various uses of the Ktunaxa internet network related to land and language, at both a community and organizational level. The objectives of the research were 1) to describe the access to connectivity and ICTs in the Ktunaxa Nation communities; 2) to explore the ongoing use and development of the Nation network, with a focus on uses related to land and language; and 3) to investigate network uses at the organizational level, specifically use by local businesses and by the Nation. ...Based on the results found in this thesis through the network narrative and survey of use there were three main conclusions. 1) The Nation network is available to businesses and residents in 31 unincorporated communities in the area, positioning the Nation to become a leader in internet service provision in the East Kootenay's. 2) The Ktunaxa Nation members have embraced connectivity and ICTs to meet their goals and to enhance the quality of life for community members. For example, Nation members utilize the internet for land management and language preservation. Within the area of land management, internet access has become an essential tool for land managers; without this access, smaller rural communities find themselves at a disadvantage on many levels. Language preservation and dissemination are goals of the Nation addressed via broadband connectivity. The Ktunaxa people have taken the initiative to combine the existing knowledge passed down from elders with modern technology to ensure that the Ktunaxa language survivies. The Nation network has enabled the process of language preservation to continue for the benefit of both current and future generations. 3) Communication among the four communities and between the communities and government or large organizations has been enhanced through the use of a system call Groupwise that utilized VoIP."--P. i-iv.

How did nineteenth-century women's poetry shift from the poetess poetry of lyric effusion and hyper-femininity to the muscular epic of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Aurora Leigh? Networking the Nation re-writes women's poetic traditions by demonstrating the debt that Barrett Browning's revolutionary poetics owed to a circle of American and British women poets living in Florence and campaigning in their poetry and in their salons for Italian Unification. These women poets—Isa Blagden, Elizabeth Kinney, Eliza Ogilvy, and Theodosia Garrow Trollope—formed with Barrett Browning a network of poetry, sociability, and politics, which was devoted to the mission of campaigning for Italy as an independent nation state. In their poetic experiments with the active lyric voice, in their forging of a transnational persona through the periodical press, in their salons and spiritualist séances, the women poets formed a network that attempted to assert and perform an independent unified Italy in their work. Networking the Nation maps the careers of these expatriate women poets who were based in Florence in the key years of Risorgimento politics, racing their transnational social and print communities, and the problematic but schismatic shift in their poetry from the conventional sphere of the poetess. In the fraught and thrilling engagement with their adopted nation's revolutionary turmoil, and in their experiments with different types of writing agency, the women poets in this book offer revolutions of other kinds: revolutions of women's poetry and the very act of writing.
