  In the Absence of the Sacred
The Failure of Technology & the Survival of the Indian Nations

By:  Jerry Mander


From Publishers Weekly
Urging that we come to a fuller understanding of the perils of technology, Mander examines the sociopolitical ramifications of innovations, focusing on the resistance of native peoples. A lively and provocative argument. 

From Library Journal
Mander's book is an angry protest against the uncritical adoption of technology, the expansion of capitalism, and the centralization of political power. He warns that these trends will lead to a New World Order dominated by multinational corporations, resulting in devastation of the earth's natural environment and native cultures. Mander argues that technologies like television and computers extend corporate control in society and promote the uncaring consumption of natural resources. To avoid imminent environmental catastrophe, he contends that we must adopt the values of Native American cultures that regard the earth as sacred. Mander, a former advertising executive, writes in compact, persuasive prose. His book reads like a series of essays. Recommended for academic and large public libraries. - Randy J. Olsen, Brigham Young Univ. Lib., Provo, Ut
