Editor Quigley (information technology, Monash Univ.; Women Do Animate: Interviews with 10 Australian Animators) has assembled nearly 100 entries written by more than 150 contributors from 19 different countries on the ethical and security issues surrounding the latest information and communication technologies. The contributors discuss such topics as RFID, digital-music piracy, the rights of children online, and more in short, factual articles focusing on ethical and security concerns, which sets this work apart from other books on these concepts. They also examine issues from non-Western and minority perspectives, e.g., "Barriers Facing African American Women in Technology" and "Information Ethics from an Islamic Perspective." Entries include bibliographies and definitions of 725 key terms. The entries' alphabetical arrangement may lead to confusion-e.g., looking under Ffor "Formulating a Code of Cyberethics for a Municipality" may seem counterintuitive-but the work is effectively indexed and the entries well written and thought-provoking.
