Product description


For nearly a decade, Rebecca MacKinnon has been at the center of evolving debates about how the Internet will affect democracy, privacy, individual liberties, and the other values free societies want to defend. Here she makes a persuasive and important case that, as with other technological revolutions through history, the effects of today's new communications systems, for human liberation or for oppression, will depend not on the technologies themselves but rather on the resolve of citizens to shape the way in which they are used . --James Fallows, National Correspondent,The Atlantic

Consent of the Networked will become the seminal book firmly establishing the responsibility of those who control the architecture and the politics of the network to the citizens who inhabit our new digital world --Joi Ito, Director, MIT Media Lab

Cyber Power and governanve of the internet is on eof the great unsolved problems of the twent-first century. Rebecca MacKinnon has written a wonderfully lively and illuminating account of the issues we face in this contentious era. It is well worth reading. --Joseph S. Nye, Jr Universtiy Distingushed Service Professor Harvard University
