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

There is more information in the world than ever before - but who's in control?

At the centre sits the Establishment: governments, corporations and powerful individuals who have more knowledge about us, and more power, than ever before. 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.

Award-winning journalist and campaigner Heather Brooke takes us inside the Information War and 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?

Review:

"Brooke hasn't set out to write just another inside account of the Wikileaks saga: this is a mélange of anecdote, imagination and experience designed to open our eyes to the possibility of digital change ... feisty and vivid and honest." ( Guardian)

"Brooke has a serious agenda and she poses serious questions ... We have been warned." ( Financial Times)

" A demanding, illuminating read." ( Independent on Sunday)

"A robust examination of the race for control of information in our digital age." ( Sunday Times Culture)

" She's a total ninja." (Ben Goldacre)
