The world is changing at an incredible rate. Most of these changes are taking place as the result of technological advances.
In the fourth edition of Social Issues in Technology, Paul Alcorn continues his systematic theme and provides the most up-to-date information concerning issues previously discussed. Chapter 4, Economics and Cultural Impetus, and Chapter 10, Catastrophic Theory: The Plague of Technological Complexity, have both been expanded. A new report on the effects of modernization on traditional Maasai societies in Tanzania and Kenya has been added.
