The Internet in Indonesia's New Democracy is a detailed study of legal, economic, political and cultural practices surrounding the provision and consumption of the Internet in Indonesia at the turn of the twenty-first century. Hill and Sen detail the emergence of the Internet into Indonesia in the mid-1990s, and cover its growth through the dramatic economic and political crises of 1997 and the subsequent transition to democracy.

Conceptually the Internet is seen as a global phenomenon, with global implications, however this book develops a way of thinking about the Internet within the limits of geo-political categories of nations and provinces. The political turmoil in Indonesia provides a unique context in which to understand the specific local and national consequences of a global, universal technology.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Hill and Sen have done a commendable job in highlighting the political role of the internet. Their book is not only interesting, but is also recommended reading for those interested in acquiring a deeper understanding of the inner dynamics of Indonesia's democratic transition.' - Contemporary Southeast Asia - A Journal of International and Strategic Affairs

'The authors deserve warm congratulations for what they have achieved, providing the most comprehensive account to date on the early development of the internet and its contribution to what some observers describe as the world's third largest democracy. The book is a pioneer in its chosen territory.' - Ariel Heryanto, Democratization, 14:3, June 2007
