Book: Peter Ludlow 1 Jul 1996

High Noon on the Electronic Frontier

Conceptual Issues in Cyberspace

Peter Ludlow has called from various sources, both print and electronic, key articles on hot cyberspace policy issues, together with lively extracts from online discussions of these issues.

The book includes the standard academic pieces along with "rants and manifestos" on a broad range of issues from the denizens of cyberspace and reflect the discourse of cyberspace itself. At times they have what Ludlow terms "a certain gonzo quality," but nonetheless they raise serious conceptual issues in a way that illustrates precisely what is at stake. The topics covered in this timely compilation include privacy, property rights, hacking and cracking, encryption, censorship, and self and community on-line.
