View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

The ideas of information as an autonomous variable and of the primacy of theoretical knowledge have been recurrent themes in discussions of the information society. In this series of eight essays, Julian Warner provides a contrasting perspective on various studies of information technology, which together put a humanistic face on our often unconscious notions of information technology. Definitely Warner's best work to date.

Review:

Warner makes some thought-provoking points and covers topics - information retrieval, copyright, and the distinction between meta-objects and meta-language - that many librarians will find valuable. College & Research Libraries ...a book well-worth reading. JASIST (Journal of the American Society for Information Science & Technology) ...the book is a strong, theoretical push, borrowing from a Marxist perspective, to draw a historical perspective on information technologies and their uses. The book's chapters, which actually act as stand alone essays, begin with a description of the perspective, lead into research from and with this perspective, and end with a discussion of the prominence this perspective could play in future developments...Warner's greatest contribution with this book is its attempt to rebuke the limited understanding of information technology in information science. British Journal of Educational Technology
