Over the last 30 years, an amassing body of work has focused on ethical dimensions of technology in a variety of contexts impacting society.

Compiling 50 authoritative articles from leading researchers on the ethical dimensions of new technologies, this comprehensive handbook is an invaluable addition to library reference collections and will provide a wealth of insights to academics, students, and practitioners in a variety of fields affected by technology and its ethical implications.
