This book consists of an inventory of research projects on the impact of technology on society. Research in this field is of growing importance as the flood of technological innovation continues. This survey indicates considerable activity in the areas of microelectronics and information technology, but with a need for more consistency and balance. By building together detailed information on current research, the volume not only increases awareness of what has been done, but also indicates areas needing further research.
