Computers and Society by Colin Beardon

Book Description

This text asks how we can ensure that computers are used for socially beneficial purposes. These papers represent an integration of research into technological and social aspects of computer technology that is relevant to the individual citizen. Written by authors from 13 different countries, the book's international outlook is neither pro nor anti-technology, but provides a discussion of common societal objectives to assess the role, and sometimes limits, of computer technology in achieving those objectives. Topics include: social citizenship in the information age; computing and disability; women as citizens and the role of information technology; computer viruses and professional ethics; computers and the New World Order; and computers for the self-determination of developing countries.
