He was "the conscience of the computer industry."


Edmund Berkeley's story and life work provides a lens to understand social
and political issues surrounding the early development of electronic
computers which ties directly to our current debates about the use of
autonomous intelligent systems.  This fascinating biography of a computer
pioneer and social activist who wanted to "engineer peace, not war" (not a
popular Cold War era opinion) illuminates issues we still deal with
regarding the social responsibilities of computer developer and
human-computer relationships. This book is a must-have for anyone interested
in the history of computing.
