Teleworking and Urban Development Patterns addresses the impact of advances in telecommunications on community development. It discusses the likelihood of an acceleration of suburbanization, particularly in the outer suburbs of cities along with the potential growth in college towns and recreation areas, and considers the likelihood of an increase in the problems of central cities as this spreading out of wealth occurs. In addition the possible negative effects of telecommunications technology, such as virtual reality, on social relations are discussed, along with possible methods of dealing with this technology's potential power over the community.
