|Resource title||Technology For The Coming Millennium: Progress, Technology, And Society According To Kirkpatrick Sale|
|Summary text/ abstract||Kirkpatrick Sale, author and social commentator, has recently received much attention as a Neo-Luddite critic of technology and modern society. The author of several books, including The Green Revolution, The Conquest of Paradise: Christopher Columbus and the Columbia Legacy, and Human Scale, he also writes for the New York Times Review of Books, The Nation, and The New York Times Magazine , and is a board member of the E.F. Schumacher Society. In his latest book, Rebels Against the Future – The Luddites and Their War on the Industrial Revolution, Sale presents the history of the Luddites to remind us of conditions in a previous era of transition, and to help us understand threats posed by the present transformation, with the hope of drawing "lessons for the computer age." In retelling the story of the mythical Ned Ludd and his army of (real) followers, he examines not only the specific actions and motivations for the Luddites, but also discusses the events occurring in the rest of England and Europe.|
