Future Imperfect describes and discusses a variety of technological revolutions that might happen over the next few decades, their implications, and how to deal with them. Topics range from encryption and surveillance through biotechnology and nanotechnology to life extension, mind drugs, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence. One theme of the book is that the future is radically uncertain. Technological changes already begun could lead to more or less privacy than we have ever known, freedom or slavery, effective immortality or the elimination of our species, and radical changes in life, marriage, law, medicine, work, and play. We do not know which future will arrive, but it is unlikely to be much like the past. It is worth starting to think about it now.

Anthony O’Neills düsterer SF-Thriller spielt in der nahen Zukunft auf dem Mond: Dort hat der exzentrische Multimilliardär Fletcher Brass die Kolonie Purgatory gegründet. Der Arm des irdischen Gesetzes ist 384.400 km entfernt, und so gilt Purgatory als Mekka für Kriminelle aller Art – bis Polizeileutnant Damien Justus in die Kolonie strafversetzt wird. Damien ist fest entschlossen, für Recht und Ordnung zu sorgen, und ist damit nicht nur dem ebenso charismatischen wie skrupellosen Brass ein Dorn im Auge. Doch die wahren Probleme beginnen, als auf der anderen Seite des Mondes ein Android zu einem Rachefeldzug aufbricht, der ganz Purgatory in Schutt und Asche legen soll.

¿Es España un país realmente libre? ¿Qué debe hacerse para alcanzar un mayor grado de libertad y de prosperidad? Desde planteamientos liberales, 26 autores coordinados por Juan Ramón Rallo aplican los principios generales del liberalismo para resolver los más acuciantes problemas sociales, políticos y económicos.A lo largo de 33 ensayos breves, se aportan soluciones para preservar el Estado de derecho, mejorar la calidad de la educación de nuestros hijos, disfrutar de pensiones sostenibles y crecientes, salvaguardar la libertad de expresión en Internet y en los medios de comunicación o promover la investigación, el desarrollo y la innovación.La distancia entre las propuestas que se exponen y la realidad de la situación actual es de tal calibre que resulta difícil sostener que vivimos en una sociedad libre. Pero, para avanzar hacia ella, los autores proponen desde una actitud realista y constructiva los mínimos indispensables sobre los que construirla. Son 33 reformas básicas que van mucho más allá de lo económico: son propuestas que pretenden influir en los futuros procesos legislativos y demostrar que otro tipo de sociedad más libre y próspera es posible.

This book analyses some of the key problems explored in Paul Virilio’s theorising on war and security. Paul Virilio has developed a provocative series of writings on how modern societies have shaped the acceleration of military/security technologies – and how technologies of security and acceleration have transformed society, economy and politics. His examination of the connections between geopolitics, war, speed, technology and control are viewed as some of the most challenging and disturbing interventions on the politics of security in the twenty-first century, interventions that help us understand a world that confronts problems that increasingly emerge from the desire to make life safer, faster, networked and more efficient. Security, Technology and Global Politics examines some of the key concepts and concerns in Virilio’s writings on security, society and technology: endo-colonization, fear and the war on terror; cities and panic; cinema and war; ecological security and integral accidents; universities and ideas of progress. Critics often point to an apocalyptic or fatalistic element to Virilio’s writings on global politics, but this book challenges this apocalyptic reading of Virilio’s work, suggesting that – while he doesn’t provide us with easy solutions to the problems we face – the political force in Virilio’s work comes from the questions he leaves us with about speed, security and global politics in times of crisis, terror and fear. This book will be of interest to students of critical security studies, political theory, sociology, political geography, cultural studies and IR in general.

Nationwide, and indeed worldwide, there has been a growing awareness of the importance of access to information. Accordingly, information technology (IT), broadly defined and its role beyond the internal workings of businesses has leapt into the social consciousness. Diving into the Bitstream distinguishes itself by weaving together the concepts and conditions of IT. What distinguishes these trends is their focus on the impacts of IT on societies, and the responsibilities of IT's creators and users. The author pulls together important, often complex issues in the relationships among information, information technologies, and societal constructs. The text explores a synopsis of these issues that are foundations for further consideration.
