The technological society by Jacques Ellul( Book )

22 editions published between 1964 and 2011 in English and French and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "La Technique ou l'enjeu du siècle a connu une destinée singulière. Refusé par deux éditeurs, il a finalement été publié dans une collection universitaire à faible tirage et a très vite été épuisé, Jamais réédité (sauf en édition pirate) il n'a cessé d'être lu et pillé, même si ceux qui l'ont utilisé ne l'ont pas toujours cité. Aux Etats-Unis, il est constamment réédité en collection de poche et est inscrit au programme des lectures obligées (text-books) de la plupart des universités. Il a également eu une grande influence chez les dissidents des pays de l'Est. Jacques Ellul n'a cessé d'approfondir sa réflexion sur la technique dans des livres devenus des classiques : Propagandes (1960), L'illusion politique (1963), Le système technicien (1977) et, tout récemment, Le bluff technologique (1987). Mais on ne peut comprendre son œuvre sans de reporter à ce livre fondateur. Prophétiques lorsqu'elles ont été écrites, ses vues sur la technique comme fait central de nos sociétés conservent plus de 35 ans après une étonnante et parfois inquiétante actualité. En 1960, Jacques Ellul avait préparé une deuxième édition revue et complétée qu'un éditeur peu avisé a renoncé à publier. C'est ce texte que les Classiques des sciences sociales offrent aujourd'hui au lecteur."
