‘This excellent volume will be a first-rate addition to the literature. It is original, thorough, well-written and well-organised. The notes to each chapter are particularly good and together with the extensive list of references make it such a comprehensive study that it should become a standard reference book on the Internet. But its greatest merit is in the analysis made so clearly and brilliantly in the eight chapters.’ – Christopher Freeman, Science and Technology Policy Research (SPRU), University of Sussex, UK and Maastricht University, The Netherlands This compelling book focuses on the global formation of the Internet system. It contests the common belief that the Internet’s adoption was inevitable and instead examines the social and economic processes that allowed to it to prevail over competing standards and methods for achieving a global information infrastructure.
