What People are Saying About This

Peter F. Cowhey

Milton Mueller's account of Internet governance is innovative in its application of network theory, fascinating in its case studies, and likely controversial in its policy judgments. In short, it is exactly what policy scholarship should contribute to a major international issue.

From the Publisher

A brilliant political account of the clash between the new power of transnational Internet governance institutions and the traditional role of the nation-state as the principal mechanism of governance. Networks and States is required reading for anyone concerned about protecting Internet freedom on a global scale as these battles unfold.

Laura DeNardis , Yale University, author of Protocol Politics: The Globalization of Internet Governance

Networks and States is a reasoned and spirited contribution to the debates over the meaning—indeed, the very existence—of Internet governance. There is much to contest in it, which makes it all the more interesting and vital.
