Canada in the Global Village
Elsewhere, you will have learned to think about Canada, or society generally, through the lens of history and various historical agents; or through the lens of social groups and institutions such as the state or business.
Technology has largely been seen as a subject for engineers, and ignored in other disciplines. Certainly it’s not examined critically as a social construction embodying important values choices, and as an historical and social agent in its own right, fundamentally influencing public and private affairs.
This book is important because it fills that gap.
