Tom Forester’s High-Tech Society (Blackwell, 1987) is an account of the technology revolution transforming society and way of life.
High-Tech Society is the most definite account available of the technology revolution that is transforming society and dramatically changing the way we live and work – and maybe even think High-Tech Society is written in popular, easy-flowing style, with none of the mystifying jargon that spoils other books on the subject. Every acronym or computer term is defined and explained in plain English. Steering a sensible course between wild enthusiasm and outright pessimism, Forester’s approach is sane and balanced. He clearly shows that there are two sides to the high-tech story.
