Book Description: Harper May 2009, 2009. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Novelist Mark Helprin takes deadly aim at the dark side of the digital age, arguing that it's not simply our attention spans, literary standards, and morality that are at stake in an Internet-driven world, but the future of culture itself. The springboard for his tirade is a seemingly minor issue (extending the terms of copyright law) that, at first glance, pits two individual 'freedoms' against each other: the right to freely access material controlled by corporations vs. the right to protect the fruits of one's creative labors. Part memoir, part account of his battles with anonymous Internet foes (and thus a harsh critique of cyberspace's assult on civil discourse), Helprin, author of A Soldier of the Great War, eloquently calls upon our love for T. S. Eliot's 'permanent things.' 'By insistence upon unhindered access without regard for rights and incentives that have been carefully balanced over centuries, the hurried new order will diminish the substance over which it demands sovereignty. It will have its access, but, as time passes, to less and less, and eventually perhaps to almost nothing.The past may be brilliantly cataloged and made accessible as never before, but at the cost of making the culture of the present relatively barren.' Well said, and well worth reading by every skeptic of that new order. Bookseller Inventory # 66906
