Editorial description(s):

From School Library Journal
Grade 6-8-A well-written overview on a timely subject. How the Internet got started, how it is used in classrooms and by businesses as well as the controversial issues surrounding it are covered. Individual use of the Internet, including mention of newsgroups, cybersex, and "MUDs"(multi-user dungeons), is also discussed. While readers with no background on the subject may initially find some of the technical language confusing, concepts are explained in the text. The black-and-white photographs, drawings, and cartoons do little to illuminate the text. Extensive notes, an annotated list of organizations to contact, and a great index conclude the book. Useful for reports.?Evelyn Butrico, Cold Spring Harbor Library, Greenlawn, NY

Gr. 6^-9. This is not a book on how to navigate the Internet but rather a thoughtful survey of how the Net got started and its many uses, now and in the future. Besides the usual coverage of its formative years, some of the major Net issues are addressed. How the Net is changing business and the way we work opens a discussion of the "paperless office." A chapter on the electronic marketplace shows that everything from books to cars is available in virtual stores. All the glories of the new technology are lauded, but its pitfalls are also pointed out. The threats of swindlers, hackers, and abuses of privacy are addressed, as well as issues concerning children on the Net and censorship. This addition to the Overview series takes on all the opportunities and challenges of online communication and helps readers see how communities can be strengthened online and off-line. Black-and-white photos, charts, and cartoons are scattered throughout. Glossary. Denia Hester
