It is a common belief that the Internet can provide real opportunities for political transformation, especially in societies where freedom of speech is constrained by the government. This volume explores the Internet's political and developmental impact by analyzing it at the local, regional, and international levels. The essays combine to show that limited Internet accessibility in some countries has led to a problematic "digital divide."
