Description - Against the Machine by Nicols Fox
Examines contemporary resistance to technology and places it in a surprising historical context. She brilliantly illuminates the rich but oftentimes
unrecognised literary and philosophical tradition that has existed for nearly two centuries, since the first Luddites-the "machine breaking" followers of the mythical Ned Ludd-lifted their sledgehammers in protest against the Industrial Revolution.
