9780470065532: Pandora's Box: Social and Professional Issues of the Information Age

Computing technology is constantly evolving and changing, developing and consolidating its position as a vital component of our lives. It no longer plays a minor part in society – it is embedded in, and affects, all aspects of life, from education to healthcare to war. Dealing with the implications of this is a major challenge, and one that can impact upon us, both personally and professionally. As a consequence, it is vital that all in the computing industry make wise decisions regarding their conduct.

Using case studies and discussion topics drawn from entertaining real world examples, Pandora’s Box examines the background of a wide range of vital contemporary issues, encouraging readers to examine the social, legal and ethical challenges they will face in their own careers.

Written in an engaging style and packed with international examples, this book addresses topics which have come to the forefront of public consciousness in recent years, such as online crime, piracy and peer to peer file sharing. Comprehensive coverage is provided of digital entertainment, censorship and privacy issues, presenting a rich source of context in which to consider ethical matters.

Suitable for students on computer science degree programmes, as well as those taking IT related modules on other courses which consider the impact of technology on 21st century living, Pandora’s Box is an essential read and a unique and timely textbook.

Review:

'I.T. has triggered complex social, political, economic and ethical issues that need urgent action if we are to survive the coming decades of unprecedented technological change. This book is a must-read for all those who want to understand the issues or, more important, want to help in their resolution.' -James Burke 'This book provides a breath of fresh air in the subject... with numerous examples. Further, it provides a nice link between ethical behaviour, professionalism and the law' -Karl Jones, Liverpool John Moores University 'I found this an excellent read, covering a wide range of essential social and professional issues for computer scientists. There is a good balance between ethical material and technical material, and it would be suitable for a layperson. An entertaining and thought-provoking book' -Dr. Carron Shankland of the University of Stirling
