book offers a fresh and insightful perspective on the Internet
and its implications for life in the global village. Taking
an international perspective, the chapters provide a combination
of original research and theory to explain the nature and
impact of the Internet on diverse populations around the world.
I recommend this book as a must-read for those interested
in either the Internet or its global consequences."
—John Pavlik, Rutgers University
the World is a sophisticated look at a poorly understood,
if key, aspect of the Internet. Erica Schlesinger Wass and
her contributors do an excellent job of delineating the political
and commercial forces that shape a global medium in a world
still dominated by nation states."
