DESCRIPTION : The commonly held conception of America as a potential utopia to be brought about technological progress is old and familiar, with many European roots. And it is a conception still shared by many Americans (and non-Americans) despite growing doubts about both America's and technology's future. The critical issue, all told, is how to live sanely and humanely in America's pervasively technological society. That is where serious discussion about America's and technology's future ought to begin. And it is the focus of this book.
