In this witty, often terrifying work of cultural criticism, the author of Amusing Ourselves to Death chronicles our transformation into a Technopoly: a society that no longer merely uses technology as a support system but instead is shaped by it--with radical consequences for the meanings of politics, art, education, intelligence, and truth.

In 1992, Neil Postman presciently coined the term "technopoly" to refer to "the surrender of culture to technology." This book brings together a number of contributors from different disciplinary perspectives to analyze technopoly both as a concept and as it is seen and understood in contemporary society. Contributors present both analysis of and strategies for managing techno-social conflict, and they also open up a number of fruitful new lines of thought around emerging technological, social, and even psychological forms.

This book investigates the fascinating and important work of the British group Radiohead, named by Time Magazine among its Top 100 Most Influential People of 2008, and focuses particularly on their landmark recording OK Computer (1997). Probing the band’s exploration of the crucial issues surrounding contemporary technological development, especially as it relates to the concern of human survival, Radiohead and the Global Movement for Change is essentially a work of criticism that in its analysis combines what is known as ‘musical hermeneutics’ with the media ecology perspective.

Equally useful to high school and college instructors, this book contains a number of path-breaking studies in history pedagogy, among them the first three published essays measuring qualitatively and quantitatively the successes and failures of e-teaching and distance learning. The essays also collectively urge instructors to take the next step with computing technology, which is to build on the passive modes (on-line syllabi, power point presentations, etc.) of teaching history with technology to create more interractive instruction and to develop students' independent and critical thinking. Other essays explore costs and planning, and implementation suggestions for how a history department can wisely plan for, and respond to, the rapid pace of technological change.
