"Readers without knowledge in IT skill could familiarize themselves with the society of new information technology simply by reading through this book. The self-empowering potential bestowed by the text would upgrade the quality of their participation without doubt. The act of reading this book itself produces useful self-knowledge. The book enables the readers to transcend the geography of greater China."

"This is a well-balanced collection of timely and thought-provoking essays. The authors survey the manifold ramifications of the ongoing information revolution in the China region from diverse perspectives, including matters of international security, censorship and domestic surveillance, cross-border corporate-competitive strategies for survival in the new knowledge economy, changing patterns of regional economic and cultural integration, and the refashioning of national identities that can be seen to be occurring amidst the simultaneous processes of technological localization and globalization. This is one work whose informative text and illuminating footnotes you will want to move through with your computer switched on and connected to the Internet, so that you can not only read about China's IT revolution, but also see the sites."
- Vivienne Shue, Oxford University
