Editorial description(s):

From School Library Journal
Grade 5 Up-An overview of the history, the mechanics, and the use of the Internet, presented in a clear and readable format. The pros and cons of the issues associated with surfing are discussed and controversial subjects such as child pornography, hate groups, cults, and censorship are explored. The chapter notes and list of organizations to contact will be of particular interest to report writers. This book will also appeal to general readers.

Gr. 6^-9. From a brief examination of the beginnings of the Internet to a lengthier discussion of its future, McCormick explores a variety of controversies as well as positive uses of this most intriguing of technologies. Organized around the major issues of control, security, equity, and access, the book addresses such topics as filters, pornography, viruses, encryption, Web TV, and Internet2. Although none are examined in depth, enough information is provided to allow readers to begin to form opinions or launch further research. Writing a book about anything as volatile and fast moving as the Internet is a gamble, but McCormick has addressed enough broad-based, far-reaching issues to make her book a reasonable option as a print resource on the topic to round out a collection. Includes a list of organizations to contact, a time line of Internet development, chapter notes, a glossary, and suggested further reading. Frances Bradburn
