A small number of selected books and articles which deal with the impact of technological advancement on the American political structure have been abstracted for this document. Materials were chosen for abstracting which presented a significant analysis of issues, a useful compilation of data, or which are representative of different outlooks and viewpoints. Most of the items covered were published since 1966. Topics considered include democratic theory and practice, the policy making process, information systems, data banks, use and control of technology for public purposes, systems analysis, and planning-programing-budgeting. Each of the topics is first discussed in general summary, followed by applicable abstracts. An author index and a reference list is provided. (JY)
