Shamans, Software and Spleens by James Boyle
Book DescriptionThis text aims to present a timely look at the problems posed by the information society. Discussing topics ranging from blackmail and insider trading to artificial intelligence (with stops in microeconomics, intellectual property, and cultural studies along the way), James Boyle has produced a work on the social theory of the information age. It aims both to formulate a critical social theory of the information society and to galvanize opposition to pending proposals which would expand intellectual-property protection in the US and internationally.
