Whose Brave New World?
In this passionate and down-to-earth book, Heather Menzies—one of Canada’s leading writers on technology and society—steers us through the jargon of the Information Highway, globalization and the Internet to grasp the moral and political issues at stake in the Brave New World of the new economy. Menzies offers positive suggestions for reviving public debate, and for a democratic renegotiation of the new economy and the Information Highway.
Whose Brave New World? is a wake-up call to those who Menzies believes may have unquestioningly–or unwittingly– succumbed to computer determinism… Her review of current thinking on the subject is comprehensive.
Heather Menzies is a well-known educator, activist, and writer. She lives in Ottawa.
