"This is a remarkable work of cultural urban sociology with ramifications for the understanding of network sociability and public space in history and in contemporary society. A great scholarly contribution that is also a pleasure to read." - Manuel Castells, Professor Emeritus, City Planning, University of California, Berkeley, USA "Graham Scambler and Aksel Tjora have edited a collection of international contributions examining the importance of cafes as 'third places,' or staging areas for social networks and social solidarity. Such 'third places' are so necessary that people will continue to create more of them, particularly in cities and in democratic societies - both of which are on the rise worldwide for the foreseeable future - and Cafe Society examines these places with new sociological depth. This volume is bound to be the last word on a timely subject for years to come." - William (Beau) Weston, Van Winkle Professor of Sociology, Centre College, USA
