A GIFT OF FIRE SARA BAASE PDF

She begins with an overview, looking at the ubiquity of computers, the rapid pace of change, and the recurrence of old problems in new contexts. To counter the mostly negative coverage of "issues", her introduction also offers a survey of the benefits of computing. Separate and largely independent chapters then cover privacy, encryption and interception, reliability and risks, freedom of speech, intellectual property, computer crime, work, broader social issues, and professional ethics. With exercises, assignments, class activities, and reading lists at the end of each chapter, along with extensive references, A Gift of Fire is clearly intended for use as a textbook. It should be just as usable outside the classroom, however, at least for those who prefer a formal approach that eschews the sensational. Much is omitted, understandably, but the breadth of coverage is still impressive and there is a good selection of examples.

Much is omitted, understandably, but the breadth of coverage is still impressive and there is a good selection of examples. Key points are well brought out and explained, and the layout is clear and effective. Changes from the first edition mostly involve updates and additions. The work is still US-focused, but less so than the first edition — the European Union and the Echelon monitoring system are covered, and the international complications of censorship brought out.
