His critical writing on the "information society" has been translated into many languages. In his book Theories of the Information Society, he examined six analytically separable conceptions of the information society, arguing that all are suspect to some degree, so much so that the idea of an information society cannot be easily sustained. He published Times of the Technoculture: from the Information Society to the Virtual Life (with Kevin Robins) 1999; Understanding Contemporary Society: Theories of the Present (with G.Browning and A.Halcli) 2000; Culture and Politics in the Information Age: A New Politics? 2001; The Intensification of Surveillance: crime, terrorism and warfare in the information era. (with Kirstie Ball) 2003; The Information Society Reader 2004.
