Armed with the opinion that technological and cultural trends are negating history and the idea of humanity itself, Hardison takes readers on a tour of the modern age. Described by PW as ``by turns incisive and glib,'' this volume offers ``engaging discussions of all manner of topics, from the British cracking of the Germans' Enigma code in WW II to automobiles as `thin-steel sculptures.'
