Book News Annotation:

Samoriski (U. of Michigan, Dearborn) takes a multidisciplinary approach as he begins to unpack the societal issues residing in the bottomless trunk that is the Internet. His central concern is to help readers understand Net technology as well as the commercial forces and agendas that are driving its deployment, so they can be informed, active participants in debate about the Net's future. He discusses how law and regulation are shaping cyberspace, looks at the social implications of evolving communication technologies, and considers the structure of the media industry and effects of monopoly.
