Ethics for the Information Age is a introductory textbook in computer ethics that has been adopted by faculty members at hundreds of colleges and universities around the world. The book, now in its seventh edition, explores both historical and contemporary issues and controversies, from the Therac-25 to Edward Snowden. It begins with a history of computing, networking, and information storage and retrieval, moves on to introduce important ethical theories, and then applies these theories to a wide variety of situations in the areas of social media, intellectual property, privacy, security, and reliability. The text ends with a look into the future and emerging issues related to artificial intelligence, automation, and unemployment.
