From the Publisher"Barger (U. of Notre Dame) presents an introduction to the field of computer ethics. He first deals with the philosophy of ethics and explores efforts to construct a unifying theory of computer ethics. He also addresses psychological factors affecting computer ethics, whether there can be a professional ethics of computing, computer ethics and international development, and ethics and robotics. For most of the remaining chapters, each topical discussion is followed by a review of related cases encountered by computer professionals. These chapters discuss computer theft and piracy, the issue of privacy, computers and power, and miscellaneous topics. A final chapter addresses the topic of parasitic distributed computing."

"... a must read for all computing professionals."
J. Beidler, University of Scranton for Choice Magazine
"This book is a thorough treatment of the problems and possible solutions of a myriad of computer-related ethical concerns. The first thing that the reader becomes aware of is the fact that Barger is obviously classically educated. His coverage of the philosophical theories on which solutions to computer ethics problems may be found is excellent; his approach in the construction of the book is refreshingly different. The book is a work of merit. I think it would be an excellent choice for a course in computer ethics, privacy, or security."
