Beschreibung

Beschreibung

In this timely and incisive work, Nicols Fox examines contemporary resistance to technology and places it in a surprising historical context. She brilliantly illuminates the rich but oftentimes unrecognized literary and philosophical tradition that has existed for nearly two centuries, since the first Luddites lifted their sledgehammers in protest against the Industrial Revolution.

Portrait

Nicols Fox, an independent journalist for more than twenty years, has written on subjects ranging from emerging pathogens to the nature of laughter. She is author of Spoiled: Why Our Food is Making Us Sick (Basic Books, 1997), It Was Probably Something You Are (Penguin, 1999) and Alone Together (Pond Press, 2002).

Pressestimmen

"[Fox] carefully and convincingly makes her case that there have always been reasonable, indeed often brilliant, people who were not at all sure that technology was solving more problems than it created."
