Synopsis

Deciphering Cyberspace Making the Most of Digital Communication Technology by Leonard C. Shyles

Deciphering Cyberspace has one goal: to demystify digital communication technology. By examining its subject matter from the three perspectives of technology, markets, and policy, Deciphering Cyberspace provides an impressively comprehensive view of the technical nature of cyberspace, its social impact, and legal significance for individuals, institutions, and society. The book: offers complete coverage of key topics while leaving room for variations in approach; contains interviews with experts in their fields; and covers a broad scope of material in a simple, clear fashion. Deciphering Cyberspace is a must have volume for anyone interested in keeping connected in our increasingly mediated world.
