      DescriptionIn Hackerspaces: Making the Maker Movement, Sarah R. Davies examines the increasingly high profile of hacking and making, drawing on visits to hackerspaces and interviews with those involved in them. Attending to the multiple strands of hacking and questions regarding the commodification of the ‘hacker spirit’ as well as the movement’s diversity, this is an engagingly written book that addresses readers beyond a purely academic audience, writes Siún Carden.
