The Road Ahead

By Bill Gates

Viking, Australia, 1995. Hardcover. Good Condition/Good. The author of this book about the future, Bill Gates, is the Harvard dropout who founded Microsoft based on his vision of a personal computer on every desk and in every home. Focusing on the so-called "information superhighway", Gates describes the breathtaking changes that will affect us all, and how emerging technologies will transform human existence in unprecedented ways. Written in a personal style, free of jargon, this book ushers in the world of tomorrow in broad and confident terms. It debunks certain notions that have gained attention in the media, and makes projections grounded in the realities of today. Gates describes how the tools of the future will change the way we make choices about almost everything, from which toaster we buy to who our friends are and how we spend time with them; from how we earn and invest, to where we live and how we protect our families in an increasingly complicated world. 286 pages.

Future Libraries

By R. Howard Bloch and Carla Hesse

University of California Press, Berkeley, California, 1995. Softcover. Near Fine Condition. As the digital revolution sweeps us toward the twenty-first century, what issues, passions, and anxieties are evoked when we consider the place of the library in the future? Humanists and social scientists are only beginning to recognize that the current revolution in the dissemination of knowledge is comparable to the one that followed the advent of printing, when huge numbers of books first became available. On the eve of the opening of the Bibliothèque de France, which has become a lightning rod for the issues raised by the electronic revolution, this collection brings together distinguished lawyers, historians, librarians, computer scientists, linguists, and architects to assess the future of libraries, books, and the printed word. The contributors represent a wide range of institutions: the Bibliothèque de France, the Library of Congress, law schools, architectural firms, universities. We are still exploring the ramifications of revolutionary techniques for writing and reading; new modes of storing and distributing data; new possibilities for acquiring, reconfiguring, and integrating knowledge. Future Libraries does much to stimulate and inform the debate on a revolution that will affect our most diverse cultural forms and our deepest social structures. 159 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
