What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"A remarkable, sober, and sobering book, quite different from the triumphalist celebrations of the information society as a universal panacaea. Jorgensen convincingly demonstrates the tremendous human rights issues that are at stake." -- Peter Leuprecht, Faculty of Political Science and Law, University of Quebec at Montreal
