TECHNOLOGIES OF FREEDOM
Today, a communications revolution is afoot, in which print is being rapidly displaced by cables, computers, videodisks, and satellites. In a masterly synthesis of history, law, and technology, Ithiel de Sola Pool lays bare the elements of this problem and suggests measures to ensure the preservation of freedom. This is a timely book of overwhelming social importance.
