Human Ecosystems and Technological Change engages students in the discovery, analysis and construction of critical arguments about societal issues posed through pro and con readings from visionary scholars in social sciences, science and technology. The collection of twenty provocative readings provide excellent content for courses that require a writing-intensive component. The articles also offer interesting and challenging material for student oral presentations. Timely topics such as “Do new sex roles burden women more than men?” “ Does the media introduce us to a new way of thinking about things?” “ Is the war on terrorism threatening our privacy?”, all create a platform for persuasive or argumentative writing or for presenting or debating the issues orally by students. The articles are grouped into sections that represent social or behavioral sciences, technological change or the global economy and are preceded by a brief introduction that highlights the issues and concepts addressed.
