Cyberpower: The Culture and Politics of Cyberspace and the Internet
Tim JordanISBN: 0415170788;
If knowledge is power, then what kind of knowledge leads to cyberpower? Written around a clear and simple theoretical framework, Cyberpower covers key concepts such as power and cyberspace, the virtual individual, society in cyberspace, and imagination and the internet. Tim Jordan surfs through a wealth of material, including original research in interviews and statistical analysis, to provide a complete 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, Cyberpower shows how cyberspace is remaking global society.
