This e-book deals with a number of issues, empirical and theoretical, in intercultural information ethics.  The first paper, by Ken Himma, attempts to identify two different intercultural information ethics projects, one normative and one descriptive, and attempts to determine whether an objectivist or intersubjectivist (or relativist) approach to truth is superior in achieving these projects.  The normative project involves soliciting agreement among different cultures on principles of information ethics.  The descriptive project involves identifying the principles that are actually applied in particular societies.  The remaining contributions are concerned with the descriptive projects.  While Rafael Capurro's paper is a short survey on the results of descriptive work in a number of countries, the other papers here are all concerned with a specific regional or national issue.  The issues include security, privacy, and online communications among Islamic fundamentalists.  The results make for a fascinating and timely e-book on one of the most pressing sets of issues in information ethics.
