Review: "This comprehensive third edition takes off where the second ended to examine ethical, social; end policy challengers stemming from the emergence of cyberspace, the convergence of telecommunication and computing technologies, and the miniaturalization of computing, telecommunication and information-enabling devices. This accessible volume broadly surveys thought provoking questions about the impact of these new technologies, with particular emphasis on the rapid growth of a multitude of computer networks, including the Internet. It assumes only a very modest familiarity with the basic computer literacy." "This newly revised text/reference provides an updated discussion of the ethical and social issues that continue to evolve as computing and information technologies proliferate. Students at all levels who need to learn about computer ethics, the legal aspects of computing, network security, computer crime investigation, and biometrics will find this well documented work an invaluable resource. The book is also highly useful for practitioners needing such insights for their work."--Jacket.
