Literature dealing with the relationship between technological change and value change is surveyed in this review. The emphasis is on the effect on contemporary American society. Most of the items covered were written since 1966. Topics include the contemporary situation, changing value orientations, social planning and the role of the social sciences, and economic, political, and religious values. A brief essay summarizes the state-of-the-art in each area, followed by abstracts of a small number of books and articles. An author index is provided. (JY)
