9780099538080: The Revolution will be Digitised: Dispatches from the Information War

There is more information in the world than ever before - but who is in control? At the centre is the Establishment: governments, corporations andpowerful 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 Collateral Murder, Cablegate and 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? Praise for The Silent State 'Passionate, eloquent and persuasive' Times Book of the Week 'Wonderful...Heather Brooke has changed British public culture and earned an essential place in our national history' Peter Oborne '***** If you care about our so-called democracy, you must read this profoundly shocking book' Mail on Sunday

About the Author:

Heather Brooke is a freelance journalist and Freedom of Information campaigner famous for uncovering the MPs' expenses scandal. She is a visiting professor at City University's Department of Journalism and is also the author of Your Right to Know and The Silent State. She has won numerous awards, including the Judges' Prize at the 2010 British Press Awards.

Review:

"Brooke hasn't set out to write just another inside account of the Wikileaks saga: this is a melange of anecdote, imagination and experience designed to open our eyes to the possibility of digital change...feisty and vivid and honest..." Guardian "a lively journey around some of the characters and debates that regularly make headlines. [Brooke] is especially well placed to pierce the veil - as a fearlessly independent investigative journalist who won't take no for an answer, she has an ability to gain access to nooks and crannies that many do not even imagine to exist...Brooke has a burning commitment and an agenda but starry-eyed she is not...[the book's] contribution is significant, and readably so...We have been warned." Financial Times
