Influences


Castells is a sociologist especially associated with information society and communication research.

The 2000–09 research survey of the Social Sciences Citation Index ranks him as the world’s fifth most-cited social science scholar, and the foremost-cited communication scholar.

A student radical, he fled from Spain to Paris in the early 1960s to escape from Francos fascist regime. In France he quickly established a reputation as a seminal thinker with his path breaking book "The urban question: a Marxist approach" (1972).
