Synopsis: It is easy to forget that every development in the history of the American information industry ? from the telephone to radio to film ? once existed in an open and chaotic marketplace inhabited by entrepreneurs and utopians, just as the Internet does today. Each of these, however, grew to be dominated by a monopolist or cartel. In this pathbreaking book, Tim Wu asks: will the Internet follow the same fate? Could the Web ? the entire flow of American information ? come to be ruled by a corporate leviathan in possession of ?the master switch?? Analyzing the strategic maneuvers of today?s great information powers ? Apple, Google, and an eerily resurgent AT&T ? Wu uncovers a time-honored pattern in which invention begets industry and industry begets empire. He shows how a battle royal for the Internet?s future is brewing, and this is one war we dare not tune out. ?Fascinating, balanced, and rigorous?a tour de force.? ? The New York Review of Books ?Entertaining. . . . There?s a sharp insight and a surprising fact on nearly every page of Wu?s masterful survey.? ? The Boston Globe
