Summary
"From crude tools in the Stone Age to smartphones in the twenty-first century, technology has always had a pervasive role in human life. In this timely study, Anabel Quan-Haase examines the places where technology and society intersect, connecting the reality of our technological age to issues of social networks, communication, work, power, and inequality. The result is a broad yet efficient overview of the tools we use, where they come from, and how they are changing our perceptions of ourselves and the relationships we form with others. This fully revised second edition includes a new chapter on gender and technology, increased coverage of the history of technology, classical theories, and ethical considerations throughout."--
