Whose Brave New World?: The Information Highway and the New Economy
In this passionate and down-to-earth book, Heather Menzies-one of Canada's leading writers on technology and society-steers us through the jargon of the Information Highway, globalization and the Internet to grasp the moral and political issues at stake in the Brave New World of the new economy. Menzies offers positive suggestions for reviving public debate, and for a democratic renegotiation of the new economy and the Information Highway.
