Within the last few decades, the computer has transformed the way people live and work--a revolution that is still in process. The availability of PCs for business, industry, and personal use have made workplaces more efficient and flexible, while the availability of the Internet and the World Wide Web have altered the nature of communication and hastened the pace of globalization. This timely anthology examines these developments and examines potential future trends in technology.
"There's a lot of material packed in here, but the brief annotation and summary of each article will help students decide where they want to start their research or reading. An appendix of primary source documents brings in the voices of the time."
