The Rise of the Computer State: The Threat to Our Freedoms, Our Ethics and our Democratic Process

'“Using the investigative skills that have won him many awards as a reporter for U.P.I, Newsweek, CBS and The New York Times . . . Mr. Burnham skillfully penetrates the Dungeons and Dragons-like maze of credit, insurance, and personnel practices, intelligence operations, market research and political polling.” —The New York Times Book Review (Aug 21, 1983)   “This book is indispensable to anyone who wonders how we might live in the 21st century. It is filled with examples foretelling the quiet disintegration of personal freedom through small choices that yield to thousands of strangers what was once personal.” —Hartford Courant (June 19, 1983)   “[Burnham] is a very good reporter, and in The Rise of the Computer State, he has applied his skills to produce a perceptive examination of the machine that is, more than any other, changing the nature of the world in which we live, moving us with breathtaking speed in unpredictable and not always beneficial directions.” —The Washington Post (Sunday, June 26, 1983)   “We have, of course, heard about the cultural and political dangers of such electronic surveillance before, but surely no previous report to the general reader has been so comprehensive as Mr. Burnham’s.” —The New York Times (June 4, 1983)'
