About this book


Overall, this is a well-written account and a useful guide to an important area of study. Alan Irwin, Senior Lecturer, Sociology, Brunel University Technology and politics are increasingly inextricably linked. This book explores the various aspects of this important relationship analysing the implications of their connections for political values and decisions and in particular the problems posed for democracy by technological development. In answering these questions, Politics and Technology discusses the nature of science, the ideas of the Green movement, the political implications of bio-technology and the communications revolution, and arguments about the impact of technical change on equality and freedom.
