From the Back Cover:

Computer Ethics: Analyzing Information Technology,

 

The 4th edition brings the field of computer ethics into the 21st Century.  Drawing on concepts and theories from STS, this edition introduces a new approach: sociotechnical computer ethics.  The book maintains a focus on enduring issues of privacy, property, democracy, and professional ethics while coming to grips with current developments in computing, information, communication technologies, and ethical issues around social networking, free and open source software, Wikipedia, artificial agents, and more. 

 

The new edition is accessible to undergraduates while at the same time providing analyses that will be of interest to scholars and theorists. As before, chapters begin with short scenarios that make the issues concrete; explain the issues clearly; provide rigorous and provocative discussion; and conclude with a set of study questions.

 

"Perhaps the greatest strength of this work is that it excels at being both a college course textbook and as a book that advances the basic ideas that comprise the field."

Peter Madsen, Carnegie Melon University

 

"I believe this is the best text on the market for Computer Ethics."

Day Radebaugh, Wichita State University

 

"The author does a good job of setting the setting the stage for a discussion on Computer Ethics and the many important factors surrounding this field."

Demetria Enis-Cole, University of North Texas
