We can now shop, vote, congregate - some would even argue we can have sex - on an entirely new plane of existence: the Internet. While this new place provides illimitable opportunities, it also raises new concerns. In this revelatory new book, O'Hara and Stevens tackle the thorny issues which crop up in this unprecedented boundaryless, and often unregulated space. Arguing that the lack of Internet access can deprive the poor of services and information that are essential to their status as equal citizens in society, they also discuss uncertainty about future technologies undermines our personal liberty - we can never be sure how the web of information we leave around ourselves will be used in years to come. Bringing together the important social, political and philosophical issues surrounding the Internet, this book will grip the attention of anyone who wishes to understand the broader issues involved everytime they click on their web browser.
