From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: This unique book presents the methods and theories available for exploring the effects of technology on our lives past, present, and future. It is designed as a primer to give investigators and general readers the necessary intellectual tools to begin their own research into the field. Key Topics: Provides a clear presentation of the underlying theories. By reducing issues to their primary essence, complex subjects are simplified and creative thought processes are supported. The book covers chaos theory and introduces applications of the concepts to promote a clearer understanding of the topic of the book as well as the chaos theory itself. Information is presented within multiple systems models to allow more flexibility and choice in approaching independent study. The second edition of Social Issues in Technology: A Format for Investigation has been revised to include an update of Systems theory that provides new information and a clearer presentation. It is intended to bring systems theory out of the static approach that is often used and into a dynamic balance. In addition, Chaos theory has been presented to more completely enunciate the general theory of technology in culture. Market: A valuable book for anyone who wishes to begin an independent analysis of the effect that technology has had on our lives, or for anyone who simply wishes to find a means for understanding these effects.
