Cultural Writing. Politics. This Red Banner Reader follows Lyndon Larouche from his origins in the Socialist Worker's Party to his interlude with the National Caucus of Labor committees, and on to the flood of organizations, fronts, committees, parties, caucuses and whatever that Larouche has generated since his prison release in 1994.

Though the old saying claims that man is the measure of all things, the authors of Inside the Politics of Technology argue that the distinction implied between autonomous humans and neutral instruments of technology is an illusion. On the contrary, the technologies humans create simultaneously shape humans themselves. By means of case studies of technologies as diverse as video cameras, electric cars, pregnancy tests, and genetic screenings, this volume considers the implications of this "co-production" of technology and society for our philosophical and political ideas.
