computer waste books

For you computer/e-waste fans, here are some great books:

Gone Tomorrow: The Hidden Life of Garbage by Heather Rogers
(Heard her on the radio the other day–she’s fantastic)

High Tech Trash: Digital Devices, Hidden Toxics, and Human Health by Elizabeth Grossman

Challenging the Chip: Labor Rights and Environmental Justice in the Global Electronics Industry edited by Ted Smith, David A. Sonnenfeld and David Naguib Pellow, foreword by Jim Hightower

One of my all-time favourite computer waste books because it’s the first attempt to quantify the environmental components and costs of computers:

Computers and the Environment: Understanding and Managing their Impacts, edited by Ruediger Kuehr and Eric Williams
