    DescriptionThere is more information in the world than ever before - but who's in control? At the centre sits the Establishment: governments, corporations and powerful individuals who have more knowledge about us, and more power, than ever before. Circling them is a new generation of hackers, pro-democracy campaigners and internet activists who no longer accept that the Establishment should run the show. Award-winning journalist and campaigner Heather Brooke takes us inside the Information War and explores the most urgent questions of the digital age: where is the balance between freedom and security? In an online world, does privacy still exist? And will the internet empower individuals, or usher in a new age of censorship, surveillance and oppression?

    Review text
    a lively journey around some of the characters and debates that regularly make headlines. [Brooke] is especially well placed to pierce the veil - as a fearlessly independent investigative journalist who won't take no for an answer, she has an ability to gain access to nooks and crannies that many do not even imagine to exist...Brooke has a burning commitment and an agenda but starry-eyed she is not...[the book's] contribution is significant, and readably so...We have been warned.
