Issues in the Information Age

by Harry Henderson

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-This well-balanced volume looks at four questions: "How Should Computers Be Used in the Classroom?"; "Should the Internet Be Censored?"; "Does Privacy Need Greater Protection?"; and "Is Cyberspace Bringing People Together or Splitting Them Apart?" Offering no easy answers, Henderson quotes a variety of experts as he explores these timely topics. This readable text will be useful to students doing research as well as to those readers who want to learn more about these issues. Although there are no startling revelations here, the book provides an organized, thorough look at the major issues surrounding the use of computers in schools and libraries today. A list of organizations to contact, source notes, and an annotated bibliography and suggestions for further reading are appended.-Yapha Nussbaum Mason, Brentwood Lower School, Los Angeles Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
