"The era of a free and open global Internet is long over -- if it ever existed. The solid research and stirring prose in this collection should empower those of us who would like to see a real global Internet rise from the patchwork of state and corporate controls over digital media." -- Siva Vaidhyanathan, author of The Googlization of Everything (And Why We Should Worry) "This team has consistently produced the most important research on how and why technology matters in contemporary politics. With unique investigative tools, policy savvy, and a normative commitment to exposing the ways that tough regimes use digital media to control civil society, Access Contested demonstrates that in many ways, information technology is politics." -- Philip N. Howard, Director, Project on Information Technology and Political Islam, University of Washington; author, The Digital Origins of Dictatorship and Democracy
