Genesis II. (book reviews)

One such book is Genesis II by Dale Peterson. The appropriate subtitle of the book is "Creation and Recreation with Computers." This thought-provoking book covers the gamut of computer-related topics from painting, music, and literature to games and the power of computers. The relationship between technology and the arts is explained by using many examples of how computers have added a new dimension to the visual arts.

other highlights of the book include a layperson's guide to computer graphics, a short history of computer games and their impact on society, and interviews with leading computer artists. Genesis II is well worth reading. Reston Publishing, $19.95.
