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 analyse 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.
