Overview

A daily battle for rights and freedoms in cyberspace is being waged in Asia. At the epicenter of this contest is China--home to the world's largest Internet population and what is perhaps the world's most advanced Internet censorship and surveillance regime in cyberspace.
Resistance to China's Internet controls comes from both grassroots activists and corporate giants such as Google. Meanwhile, similar struggles play out across the rest of the region, from India and
Singapore to Thailand and Burma, although each national dynamic is unique. Access Contested, the third volume from the OpenNet Initiative (a collaborative partnership of the Citizen Lab at the
University of Toronto's Munk School of Global Affairs, the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, and the SecDev Group in Ottawa), examines the interplay of national security,
social and ethnic identity, and resistance in Asian cyberspace, offering in-depth accounts of national struggles against Internet controls as well as updated country reports by ONI researchers.
The contributors examine such topics as Internet censorship in Thailand, the Malaysian blogosphere,
surveillance and censorship around gender and sexuality in Malaysia, Internet governance in China,
corporate social responsibility and freedom of expression in South Korea and India, cyber attacks on independent Burmese media, and distributed-denial-of-service attacks and other digital control measures across Asia.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

"The era of a free and open global Internet is long over -- if it ever existed. The solid research and stirring prose in this collection should empower those of us who would like to see a real global Internet rise from the patchwork of state and corporate controls over digital media." -- Siva Vaidhyanathan, author of The Googlization of Everything
(And Why We Should Worry)

The MIT Press

"This team has consistently produced the most important research on how and why technology matters in contemporary politics. With unique investigative tools, policy savvy, and a normative commitment to exposing the ways that tough regimes use digital media to control civil society, Access Contested demonstrates that in many ways, information technology
is politics." -- Philip N. Howard, Director, Project on
Information Technology and Political Islam, University of Washington; author, The Digital
Origins of Dictatorship and Democracy
