Unique in its depth, breadth, and variety of opinions and writings, this anthology of scholarly and popular articles explores the positive, negative, ethical, and unethical issues faced by society as technology changes the world that we live in–on a personal, national, and international level. Using specific examples from the past and present (and hypothesized ones for the future), it exposes readers to the full breadth and depth of issues, showing the complexity that makes “solutions” not so simple. It encourages readers to think critically, analytically, and creatively about today's technological and sociological problems, and challenges them to contemplate solutions of their own.

Ethical theory, technological history, the depletion of energy resources, population growth, ecological changes, medical technologies, and third world development.

For anyone interested in the impact of technology on society.
