THE AUDACITY OF CYBERSPACE, The struggle for Internet power by Thomas L Blair. This well-written book takes an entirely practical approach to debates on global information poverty. Using case studies of Black communities in the USA, Britain and Africa, the author a sociologist and online journalist, explains their Internet actions for equality and freedom of expression. Their campaigns for Internet access and self-directed web sites are, says Blair, challenging the information elites – the owners, providers, controllers and ultimately the censors – to endorse freedom of expression in the digital age.
Key reading for students, academics and researchers in a variety of disciplines – including sociology, anthropology, e-Black studies, Afro-European, Africana and information technology studies.
