Book excerpt: Whether termed the 'network society', the 'knowledge society' or the 'information society', it is widely accepted that a new age has dawned, unveiled by powerful computer and communication technologies. Yet for millennia humans have been recording knowledge and culture, engaging in the dissemination and preservation of information. In `The Early Information Society', the authors argue for an earlier incarnation of the information age, focusing upon the period 1900-1960. In support of this they examine the history and traditions in Britain of two separate but related information-rich occupations - information management and information science - repositioning their origins before the age of the computer and identifying the forces driving their early development. `The Early Information Society' offers an historical account which questions the novelty of the current information society. It will be essential reading for students, researchers and practitioners in the library and information science field, and for sociologists and historians interested in the information society.

In the U.S., applications of steam power in the early 1800s brought a dramatic rise in the speed, volume, and complexity of industrial processes, making them difficult to control. Inevitably the Industrial Revolution, with its ballooning use of energy to drive material processes, required a corresponding growth in the exploitation of information.

Book excerpt: "In a riveting look at today's computer technology, Robins and Webster ask the disturbing question: Is it cyber-revolution-or information capitalism? They trace the information age from the Industrial Revolution to the silicon chip and the Internet. Examining the politics of cyberspace, they show how the military has controlled the development of new technologies and why education plays a central role in government attempts to create a "knowledge society." With broad coverage of current issues, including information policy, technological innovation, education, the military, surveillance, and propaganda, Times of the Technoculture is a thought-provoking revisionist account of Luddite resistance to new technologies." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0649/99020329-d.html.
