This book investigates the relationship between human
society and technology, as our private and public lives
are increasingly undertaken in spaces that are inherently
digital: digital public spaces. The book unpicks why
digital technology is such an inextricable part of modern
society, first by examining the historical relationship
between technological development and the early
progression of human sociality. This is then followed by
an examination of the ways in which modern life is
currently being impacted by the expansion of digital
information and devices into multiple aspects of our
lives, including focuses on privacy, bias and ownership
in digital spaces. Finally, it explores potential future
developments and their implications, and proposes that it
is crucial to consider the design of technology and
systems in order to support a positive and beneficial
direction of change.

With generational divides wider than ever, parents,
educators, and employers have an urgent need to
understand today-s rising generation of teens and young
adults. iGen is the first generation to spend their
entire adolescence in the age of the smartphone. With
social media and texting replacing other activities, iGen
spends less time with their friends in person-perhaps why
they are experiencing unprecedented levels of anxiety,
depression, and loneliness. As this new group of young
people grows into adulthood, we all need to understand
them: friends and family need to look out for them,
colleges and universities must know how to educate and
guide them. And members of iGen also need to understand
themselves as they communicate with their elders and
explain their views to their older peers. Because where
iGen goes, so goes our nation-and the world.

This book makes the readers aware of what bad habits are
routinely followed by well-intended managers. Managers
need to understand the causes for their constant
distraction, become more aware of the negatives they
inadvertently inflict, and the hollowness of the
rationales they use to justify what they do. Company
leaders, CEOs, and top tier managers need to become more
aware of the ever-present concerns of their own
workforce, implementing the management mentality they
want in their company and then teaching their managerial
employees how to absorb it.

board members, institutional investors and economic
policymakers, as well as graduate and undergraduate

The author describes how we can source our inner
capacities and wisdom to manifest change that embodies
universal values such as dignity, compassion, fairness,
and courage. She presents a radical new approach to
transformational leadership, one that creates systems of
change where everyone can engage-not just analysts and
policy-makers. It demystifies policy-making, planning,
and implementation so that everyone can play an informed
and strategic part in eradicating the world-s most
intractable problems. Using real-life examples from
around the world, she shows how our innate
characteristics of universal compassion, equity impulse,
and human capability can create new patterns that
effectively address major challenges such as gross
inequality, unbridled hate, conflicts based on social
identity, and the never-enough mindset of greed.
