Times of the Technoculture: From the Information Society to the Virtual Life (Comedia)
Kevin Robins, Frank WebsterISBN: 0415161169;
In a riveting look at today's computer technology, Robins and Webster ask the disturbing question: Is it cyber-revolution-or information capitalism? They trace the information age from the Industrial Revolution to the silicon chip and the Internet. Examining the politics of cyberspace, they show how the military has controlled the development of new technologies and why education plays a central role in government attempts to create a "knowledge society." With broad coverage of current issues, including information policy, technological innovation, education, the military, surveillance, and propaganda, Times of the Technoculture is a thought-provoking revisionist account of Luddite resistance to new technologies.
