International Affairs Does the exponential growth of the Internet really mark a revolution in human interaction and communication, providing truly democratic access to information and ideas? Or, compounded by a growing number of competing interests now arguing for the introduction of more rigorous controls, will the full potential of the Internet fail to be recognised?

Controversial and topical, Liberating Cyberspace sheds valuable new light on some of the fundamental issues of modern global communication.
