    Book details


This book revisits many aspects of current social science theories, such as actor-network theory and the French school of science and technology studies, to test how the theories apply in a specific situation, in this case after 1991 in the city of Cherepovets in Russia, home of Russia’:s second biggest steel producer, Severstal. Using political philosophy to analyse the down-to-earth details of the real techno-scientific problems facing the world, :the book :examines the role of things - and urban infrastructure in particular - in political change. It considers how the city’:s infrastructure, including housing, ICT networks, the provision of public utilities of all kinds, has been transformed in recent years: examines the roles of different actors including the municipal authorities, and explores citizens’: differing and sometimes contradictory images of their city. It includes a great deal of new thinking on how communities are built, how common action is initiated to provide public goods, and how the goods themselves - physical things –: are a crucial driver of community action and community building, arguably more so than more abstract social and human forces.
