The Luddites and Their War on the Industrial Revolution : Lessons for the Computer Age
Baker & Taylor A well-known journalist traces the history of opposition to technology and industrialization beginning, with the Luddite movement in Britain during the Romantic era, and finds compelling lessons about the dehumanizing aspects of modern life.
Book News The story of an 1811-1812 uprising by English victims of the first Industrial Revolution, viewed from the perspective of the modern information revolution. A supporter of a neo-Luddite movement, the author reminds readers that today's rapidly developing technologies, machine-driven conformity, and corporatization are just as disruptive as the steam engine and laissez-faire were to 19th century cottage workers.
