The Computerization of Society: A Report to the President of France

By Simon Nora and Alain Minc

This is a translation of a 1978 report commissioned by Giscard d'Estaing on the way computers may influence French society, with particular emphasis on telecommunications. It raises both practical and philosophical problems, and suggests a French national plan. As is to be expected, there are many contrasts with the larger and looser American way of doing things in this domain.
