Cyberpower: The Culture and Politics of Cyberspace and the Internet

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 1999 - Computers - 254 pages
0 Reviews
This volume covers key concepts such as power and cyberspace, the virtual individual, society in cyberspace, and imagination and the internet. The author surfs through a wealth of material, including original research in interviews and statistical analysis, to provide an analysis of the politics and culture of cyberspace. Drawing on examples from cross-gendered virtual selves to the meaning of Bill Gates, he questions who actually governs cyberspace and what powers the individual can control while there. Using case studies from the rich mythology of the electronic frontier, from cyberrape to total surveillance, the author also addresses how cyberspace is remaking global society.
