Editorial description(s):

Ever since the first computer stored the first bits of information, ethical questions about the use and application of computers have been raised. However, the advent of the Internet and the fact that it enables all sorts of new behaviors and activities make it imperative that ethical issues be addressed--as librarians know all too well. Those issues include privacy, equity, personal responsibility, censorship, individual and national identity, and reliability. Langford is a British scholar who has written several textbooks on computer ethics. He has now gathered experts from disciplines as diverse as law, security, intellectual property, and philosophy to discuss such topics as the Internet and democratic values, moral wrongdoing, and information integrity. All but 1 of his 10 contributors are from the U.S. or Britain, but Langford has also assembled a group of "commenting authors" from every continent to ensure a global perspective. That panel provides a running commentary on various points throughout the collection. David Rouse

From Book News, Inc.
With specialist authors from 11 countries, this global, multidisciplinary approach concentrates on the philosophical, ethical, and legal issues that the Internet engenders rather than its mechanics (though a chapter is devoted to the technology). Ten contributions address such concerns as the moral varieties of Internet mischief, information integrity, democratic values, and the responsibilities of computer professionals. Includes a substantial bibliography with some references aptly having a Web address.

Book Description
The global Internet is assuming an increasingly significant role in the modern world, changing the structure of our lives. An uderstanding of the ethical issues surrounding this international entity is therefore crucial to anyone using the Internet. While most Internet books are concerned with the mechanics of programming and usage, INTERNET ETHICS, considers the moral, ethical and legal framework underpinning our use of the Internet and the World Wide web.
