I've never seen Amazon do this before -- they've got Eastern Standard Tribe on sale at a 60 percent discount -- that's $9.58 for the new hardcover! Hell, that's less that I get 'em for.

While some might consider Doctorow a booster for the online, wired lifestyle, his books contain subtle but pointed warnings about the flaws of high tech societies. Being a Tribalist, living out of circadian synch with the people around you, relating with people you mainly know as a handle on a screen, encourages paranoia and disloyalty, smartness instead of happiness. Art becomes an object lesson in how such a society can ruin a person, and his salvation doesn’t lie in technology.
