Editorial Reviews

Booknews
With specialist authors from 11 countries, this global, multidisciplinary approach concentrates on the philosophical, ethical, and legal issues that the Internet engenders rather than its mechanics (though a chapter is devoted to the technology). Ten contributions address such concerns as the moral varieties of Internet mischief, information integrity, democratic values, and the responsibilities of computer professionals. Includes a substantial bibliography with some references aptly having a Web address. Langford is a computing fellow at the U. of Kent. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
