On Nineteen Eighty-Four, Paperback (May 2005)
The Cold War that has so often been linked to Orwell's novel ended with more of a whimper than a bang, but most of the issues of concern to him remain alive in some form today: censorship, scientific surveillance, power worship, the autonomy of art, the meaning of democracy, relations between men and women, and many others.
Grid and the Village, Hardback (October 2001)
In January 1998 a great ice storm crushed power grids in New York, New England and eastern Canada. In this insider's account of these events, the author describes the destruction of the electric network in his own village and illuminates the relationship between electronic and human connections.
