Vivid, bold and brisk, Internet Wars traces one of the most critical emerging power struggles of the 21st century, the battle to control the internet.

Already exploitation of this super-network has helped create the world's most valuable company, toppled governments, led to the largest wealth transfer in history, and created the most extensive global surveillance system ever known.

Google's Eric Schmidt described the internet as 'the first thing that humanity has built that humanity doesn't understand'. Yet only by understanding the broad currents of the internet's growth will we be able to secure its vitality and promise into the future.

Internet Wars is a call to action for a more informed debate about a contest that will profoundly affect us all for generations to come.
