ABC: Alphabetization of the Popular Mind - Illich, Ivan, and Sanders, Barry, and Dimock, Peter (Editor)

An intense examination of the effects of technology on literacy and language. The authors argue that there is a phenomenon transforming modern culture--language is becoming part of a technology of "information systems" with an emphasis on control, rather than human exchange. As a result, all language is becoming debased.
