Item description for El Delirio De Turing (Turing's Obsession) by Edmundo Paz Soldan...

Una atpica novela social. Una apasionante trama de suspenso, con el teln de fondo de la crisis del neoliberalismo y las protestas contra la globalizacin.

Ro Fugitivo vive la semana decisiva de una revuelta popular contra el alza de las tarifas de energa elctrica hecha por una transnacional. A las tradicionales manifestaciones callejeras, se suma una nueva forma de protesta para un nuevo siglo: la guerra electrnica, los virus informticos.

En este enfrentamiento se entrecruzan los destinos de varios personajes: Kandinsky, hijo de un minero relocalizado, es el mtico lder de un grupo de hackers que combate al gobierno y a las transnacionales; Albert es el fundador, en tiempos de dictadura, de la Cmara Negra, organismo de seguridad del Estado encargado de descifrar las claves y cdigos secretos de los opositores; Miguel Senz --conocido como Turing-, el ms famoso descifrador de cdigos de la Cmara Negra, comienza a sospechar que su trabajo durante la dictadura no fue tan inocente como l crea.

Edmundo Paz Soldn ha escrito el complejo capitulo contemporneo de la vieja lucha entre los creadores de mensajes secretos y sus descifradores, entre los opresores y los oprimidos.
