From the Back Cover:

The world is changing at an incredible rate. Most of these changes are taking place as the result of technological advances.

  • We have survived Y2K.
  • We are on the verge of a communications revolution.
  • We have mapped the human genome in its entirety.

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.

Instructors who are using this book for a course should obtain the accompanying Instructor's Manual (ISBN: 0-13060258-2).
