This is a study of the political economy and culture of cyberspace, at odds with, and critical of, the unquestioning enthusiasm for the information highway. The unifying theme of this collection of essays is the awareness of the complexity and unpredictability of the evolution of cyberspace, where radical innovations will occur, against a background of questions about power and domination.
