       Additional Information  
     
      A clash-of-cultures collection of 33 essays--scholarly treatments by learned professors and online screeds and manifestos by psuedonymous hackers--dealing with the knotty questions of cyberspace: privacy, property rights hacking and cracking, encryption, censorship, and self and community. A great book for courses on the Internet, or for the more thoughtful and philosophically inclined Net traveler.

    Peter Ludlow has culled from various sources, both print and electronic, key articles on hot cyberspace policy issues, together with lively extracts from online discussions of these issues. These include the standard academic pieces along with "rants and manifestos" on a broad range of issues from the denizens of cyberspace and reflect the discourse of cyberspace itself. At times they have what Ludlow terms "a certain gonzo quality," but nonetheless they raise serious conceptual issues in a way that illustrates precisely what is at stake. The topics covered in this timely compilation include privacy, property rights, hacking and cracking, encryption, censorship, and self and community on-line.
