Against the Machine by Nicols Fox

Book Description

In this timely and incisive work, Nicols Fox examines contemporary resistance to technology and places it in a surprising historical context. She brilliantly illuminates the rich but oftentimes unrecognized literary and philosophical tradition that has existed for nearly two centuries, since the first Luddites lifted their sledgehammers in protest against the Industrial Revolution.
