DESCRIPTION

For courses in Computer Ethics and Computers & Society. This text explores social, legal, philosophical, ethical, political, constitutional and economic implications of computing from a computer scientist's point of view. It covers the issues students will face both as members of a technological society and as professionals in computer-related fields. One of its goals is to develop computer professionals who understand the implications of what they create and how it fits into society at large--another is to help students outside of computer science understand the issues and controversies generated by computers and the Internet.
