About this title

Synopsis:

Enter the front lines of both sides &nbspin the war to control the Net.

The U.S. Justice Department, the Christian Coalition and the Guardian Angels want to clean up the Net. ACLU attorneys, college activists and a raging band of rebels are trying to stop them. Who will win this epic battle, and what will the consequences be?

From Charles Platt, one of the original online renegades and a contributing editor of Wired magazine, comes these two distinct "guides" --each with its own front cover -- to address both sides of these modern issues in one book. This authoritative look begins with the origins of Usenet and ends in a nightmarish future where the war on netporn has become as expensive and futile as the war on drugs. Along the way we meet dozens of other colorful personalities fighting to control the greatest mass medium since the printing press.

Review:

Anarchy Online is absolutely a must-read for anyone concerned about cyberspace matters. Charles Platt's excellent book promises "the truth beyond the hype" and he delivers. "Anarchy Online" examines the sensationalism surrounding crime, free speech issues, and sex on the Net. He's done his homework, covering issues like cyberporn, hacker busts, and encryption in compelling detail. Although he possesses an insider's knowledge of the insiders, Platt steps back sufficiently to get a useful and thought-provoking perspective.
