This book is appropriate for any standalone computers and society or computer ethics course offered by a computer science, business or philosophy department, as well as special modules in any advanced CS course.

In an era where information technology changes constantly, a thoughtful response to these rapid changes requires a basic understanding of IT history, an awareness of current issues, and a familiarity with ethics. Ethics for the Information Age is unique in its balanced coverage of ethical theories used to analyse problems encountered by computer professionals in today's environment.

By presenting provocative issues such as social networking, government surveillance and intellectual property from all points of view, this market-leading text challenges students to think critically and draw their own conclusions, which ultimately prepares them to become responsible, ethical users of future technologies.
