Governing the Internet: The Emergence of an International Regime

Governing the Internet: The Emergence of an International Regime

by Marcus F. Franda

Editorial Reviews

Reflecting Franda's practical involvement with international business through various chambers of commerce, this study looks at the ways government officials, technocrats, businesspeople, and other users from many nations have been able to effect cooperation, in a very short period of time, to create rules and procedures for the relatively smooth operation of the Internet. Franda (government and politics, U. of Maryland) focuses on countries with the most advanced IT infrastructures, but he also discusses the development of the Net in China as a test case for accommodating the majority of the world's citizens in an international regime.
