In a balanced treatment, Thomas (communication, U. of Southern California) traces the evolution of the hacking subculture over the generations and mainstream culture's projection of anxieties over computer technology onto them. He provides a reading of how the computer underground is represented in the electronic Phrack journal; examines non-hacker online youth culture; and discusses laws and cases regarding hacking. Includes photos of hackers and other visuals. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
