Product description

Review

`Magisterial... Wu is a wonk, a Silicon Valley princeling and a professor at Columbia University. He will, in short, be heard and rightly so... If new media laws are to be made, this book will be a key document.' --Sunday Times

'Wu is the rare writer capable of exhuming history and also interpreting current affairs. In this profound and important book, he excels at both.' --New Scientist

Book Description

At the heart of this fascinating book is one of the central questions of our age - rendered more urgent by recent events in the Arab world: is the internet a revolutionary innovation that will overthrow the established order... or will it turn out to have been an unruly technology, that will never escape the controlling embrace of corporations and governments? (Guardian) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
