There is more information in the world than ever before, but who is in control? At the centre is the Establishment: governments, corporations and powerful individuals who have more knowledge about us, and more power, than at any other time in history. Circling them is a new generation of hackers, pro-democracy campaigners and internet activists who no longer accept that the Establishment should run the show. In her gripping, revelatory new book, award-winning journalist and campaigner Heather Brooke takes us inside the Information War, from the hackerspaces of Boston and Berlin to the UK's journalism hub and Iceland's free speech revolution; from the headquarters of Google and Facebook to the murky world of Julian Assange and Wikileaks. Along the way Brooke explores the most urgent questions of the digital age: where is the balance between freedom and security? In an online world, does privacy still exist? And will the internet empower individuals, or usher in a new age of censorship, surveillance and oppression?

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Andreas Jungherr | 10/15/2013

    " For my taste too much storytelling, too little analysis. Still, some interesting anecdotes about the cooperation between Wikileaks and the Guardian in 2010. "

    " Slightly terrifying read when you realise how pervasive the surveillance society now is, but there is some hope that the way Iceland is dealing with freedom of speech can be replicated in the UK. "

    " A really excellent take on the digital revolution, woven together in a storytelling / reporting style that is more digestible than often such books can be. Fascinating behind the scenes discussion of how the major Wikileaks leaks were played out in the press. "
