Issues in Cyberspace: From Privacy to Piracy

by Robert Curley
 

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Heather Christensen
Britannica gives readers a chronological perspective of computer and information technology in this five book series. Each book introduces a particular topic and then more fully explores it from its historic roots to the most recent innovations and developments. Because many of the topics are so interconnected, there is some duplication between the books in the series. Issues In Cyberspace is especially relevant today with its exploration of data mining, including a reference to the NSA's acquisition of call records from American telecommunication companies. Regrettably, this volume includes only a passing reference to cyberbullying, an issue that is especially pertinent to many young people. Overall, this is a well-developed series on an ever-changing topic. By connecting current developments with the past, students will see that new technologies do not appear spontaneously, but usually grow from existing knowledge. This series will work well for student research projects as well as in providing important information on technologies that today's students use on a daily basis.
