From the cover: “This book brings a wide-ranging view of control theory to the general reader. Although it has origins in engineering, control theory gives valuable insights into everyday life. The author takes the reader on a brief tour of positive feedback, negative feedback and the rest, and then applies his theory to a fascinating analysis of politics and economics in the twentieth century. He concludes with a guardedly optimistic view of the future of technology.”
