   RECENT BOOKS ON CYBERNETICS BY THE AUTHOR’S COUNTRY OF ORIGIN Stuart Umpleby and Elise Hughes Department of Management The George Washington University Washington, DC 20052 O: 202-994-7355, Cell: 571-305-0085 December 12, 2016  ! RECENT BOOKS ON CYBERNETICS BY THE AUTHOR’S COUNTRY OF ORIGIN Compiled by Elise Hughes and Stuart Umpleby Stuart Umpleby believed that the number of books on cybernetics had been increasing in recent years. He asked his research assistant Elise Hughes to compile a list. The list below includes some books that were  published earlier but have been reissued in the last few years. He thought there would be more books from Europe than the US, since many people in the US have not heard of “cybernetics”, but people in Europe seem to  be more familiar with the term. The list turned out to be longer than expected, and the number of contributions from the US and Canada were more than expected. North America (US 49 and Canada 4) contributed 53. Europe (UK to Russia) contributed 60 but if Australia is added to Europe, the number is 62. There were fewer books from Asia (China 6, Japan 1) with a total of 7. The list contains only books in English. If other languages were included (e.g., French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Polish, etc.), the number of books from Europe would clearly be larger than the number of books from North America. The number of books published each year on cybernetics has been rising. See the bar chart on page 6. The fact that books published earlier have been reissued is another sign that there is renewed interest in the field in recent years. Elise Hughes used Google Books and to search using the keywords “cybernetic,” “cybernetics,” and “cybernetician.” She used each of the keywords as a general search as well as restricting the search to the title and subject fields. For example, the keyword “cybernetic” was used as a search term three times in Google Books, once in the standard search bar, and twice using the advanced search function to fill in the “title” and “subject” fields respectively. This process was repeated for each of the keywords and again on Amazon. At the end of this process each keyword had been used six times, and overall a total of 18 searches were completed. She restricted the publishing date to 2000 and later. The list includes books that have been rereleased within this time frame. In order to find the first author’s country of srcin Ms. Hughes used the “About the Author” section of Amazon,  book jacket biographies, and Google. Many of the authors of the rereleased books were notable enough to have Wikipedia pages. The list can be used to answer a number of questions. Do authors think cybernetics is a technical discipline or a theoretical and philosophical field? Does “cybernetics” refer to the use of computers in society and organizations? We welcome suggested modifications of this list – additions, deletions, and reassignments. United States  – 49 •   2017; Roberts, Scott J. and Kyle R.
