The Data Revolution book published

Rob Kitchin’s latest book The Data Revolution: Big Data, Open Data, Data Infrastructure and Their Consequences was published on August 23rd by Sage.  There’s a dedicated website with a bunch of resources (including open access links to related papers and a hyperlinked bibliography), plus a promo video (below).  The publisher has made the preface and chapters one (Conceptualising Data) and four (Big Data) open access.  The website has a full table of contents and chapter outlines though the title gives a pretty good description as to what it’s about.  The book has had a decent amount of advance praise.  The site includes details about buying the book, including electronically through just about every format going.
