Overview

Philip Jenkins takes a leap onto the lower tiers of electronic media in this pioneering book. He tells the story of how the advent of the Internet caused this deviant subculture to become highly organized and go global. We learn how the trade, which operates on clandestine Web sites from Budapest or Singapore to the United States, is easy to glimpse yet difficult to eradicate. Jenkins details how the most sophisticated transactions are done through a proxy, a "false flag" address, rendering the host computer, and participants, virtually unidentifiable. And these sites exist for only a few minutes or hours, allowing online child pornographers to stay one step ahead of the law. This is truly a globalized criminal network that knows no names or boundaries, and thus challenges both international and U.S. law. Beyond Tolerance delves into the myths and realities of child pornography and the complex process of stamping out criminal activity on the Web, including the timely debates over trade regulation, users' privacy, and individual rights. This sobering look at a criminal community contains lessons about human behavior and the law that no one interested in media and the new technology can afford to ignore.

Is not a review* It was, at best, an opinion* Your keen observation of the obvious does little to illuminate a rationale for purchasing this missive* If you merely wish to propagate your viewpoint, try blogging* Ta!
