Kurzbeschreibung

5. April 2012
In The Net Delusion: How Not to Liberate the World Evgeny Morozov argues that our utopian, internet-centric thinking holds devastating consequences for the future of democracy. We were promised that the internet would set us free. From the Middle East's 'twitter revolution' to Facebook activism, technology would spread democracy and bring us together as never before. We couldn't have been more wrong. In The Net Delusion Evgeny Morozov shows why internet freedom is an illusion. Not only that - in many cases the net is actually helping oppressive regimes to stifle dissent, track dissidents and keep people pacified, with companies such as Google and Amazon helping them do it. This book shows that free information doesn't mean free people - and that, right now, everyone's liberty is at stake. 'Offers a rare note of wisdom and common sense, on an issue overwhelmed by digital utopians'
  Malcolm Gladwell 'Passionate, admirable and important'
  Observer 'The book is a wake-up call to those who think the internet is the solution to all our problems'
  Daily Telegraph 'A delight ... his demolition job on the embarrassments of "internet freedom" is comprehensive'
  Independent 'A compelling rebuff ... required reading for everyone'
  Sunday Times 'Piercing ... convincing ... timely'
  Financial Times Evgeny Morozov is a contributing editor to Foreign Policy and runs the magazine's influential and widely-quoted 'Net Effect' blog about the Internet's impact on global politics. Morozov is currently a Yahoo! fellow at the Institute for the Study of Diplomacy at Georgetown University.

Pressestimmen

Evgeny Morozov offers a rare note of wisdom and common sense, on an issue overwhelmed by digital utopians (MALCOLM GLADWELL)

Gleefully iconoclastic ... not just unfailingly readable: it is also a provocative, enlightening and welcome riposte to the cyber-utopian worldview. (The Economist)

A delight ... his demolition job on the embarrassments of "internet freedom" is comprehensive ... as we go down the rabbit-hole of WikiLeaks, Morozov's humane and rational lantern will help us land without breaking our legs. (Pat Kane The Independent)

A passionate and heavily researched account of the case against the cyber-utopians ... only by becoming "cyber-realists" can we hope to make humane and effective policy. (Bryan Appleyard New Statesman)

Evgeny Morozov is wonderfully knowledgeable about the Internet-he seems to have studied every use of it, or every political use, in every country in the world (and to have read all the posts). And he is wonderfully sophisticated and tough-minded about politics. This is a rare combination, and it makes for a powerful argument against the latest versions of technological romanticism. His book should be required reading for every political activist who hopes to change the world on the Internet. (Michael Walzer, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton)

The Net Delusion is considerably more than an assault on political rhetoric ... a war against complacency. (Tom Chatfield Observer)

Required reading for all ... a compelling primer and rebuff to the "cyber utopians" ... trenchant and persuasive. (John Kampfner Sunday Times)

Lively and combative ... dauntingly well-informed ... injects a welcome dose of common sense into an issue that has been absurdly lacking in it. (John Preston Sunday Telegraph)

Piercing...convincing...timely. (Ben Hammersley Financial Times)

[M]ore than rewards a respectful reading, not only for the author's impressive knowledge of the internet toolbox...but because of his ability to relate such technological gadgetry to the increasing challenges that are being posed to entrenched authoritarianism (James M Murphy Times Literary Supplement)

Selected by the New York Times as one of the 100 Notable Books of 2011 (New York Times)

Von Jonas
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Despite its length, this book offers an entertaining read, introducing much more topics than I would have expected of the subject web and politics:
- illusionary expectations and explanations without real clues how to deal with the new possibilites
- transfer of old communication metaphors on new media that might lead to erroneous decisions
- political education vs entertainment that rather sidetracks citicens of totalitarian states
- censorship & control
- propaganda through the new media
- observation of citicens' online behaviour
- online activism instead of real help
- treatment of freedom of mind in the US vs expectations from foreign (less developed) countries
- development of communication channels in the past

The author manages to convey lots of knowledge of theory and practice at the moment and in the past.
One point of criticism refers to the chapter headings that sound nice but do not give a clue on what to expect.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Sehr detaillierte Darstellung des Problems 13. Februar 2012
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Der Autor stellt hier das Problem der "Netze" und ihrer Nutzung sehr detailliert und mit viel Hintergrundinformationen dar.

Besonders spannend ist auch die Darstellung, wie in verschiedenen Diktaturen auf der Welt mit dem Thema "Informationen im Netz" umgegangen wird.

5.0 von 5 Sternen excellent 7. September 2011
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
As is the case with majority of books today there is a lot of repetition especially at the beginning. It gets better in middle chapters. The book is touching the very essence of silver bullet approach many people have. It is also a reality that whatever technology you take - it can be used by good and bad guys. So was it with nuclear weapons and so is it with internet and all modern tools of communication that use it as a transport medium.

3.0 von 5 Sternen an interesting, but overly-pessimist, look at the relationship between Net & global politics 4. Januar 2011
Von Adam Thierer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
In The Net Delusion, Morozov positions himself the ultimate Net "realist," aiming to bring a dose of realpolitik to discussions about how much of a difference the Net and digital technologies make to advancing democracy and freedom. His depressing answer: Not much. Indeed, Morozov's book is one big wet blanket on the theory that "technologies of freedom" can help liberate humanity from the yoke of repressive government.

Morozov clearly relishes his skunk at the garden party role, missing few opportunities to belittle those who subscribe to such theories. If you're one of those who tinted your Twitter avatar green as an expression of solidarity with Iranian "Green Movement" dissidents, Morozov's view is that, at best, you're wasting your time and, at worst, you're aiding and abetting tyrants by engaging in a form of "slacktivism" that has little hope of advancing real regime change. The portrait he paints of technology and democracy is a dismal one in which cyber-utopian ideals of information as liberator are not just rejected but inverted. He regards such "cyber-utopian" dreams as counter-productive, even dangerous, to the advance of democracy and human freedom.

Much of the scorn he heaps on the cyber-utopians is well-deserved, although I think there are far fewer of them around than Morozov imagines. Nonetheless, there certainly is a bit too much Pollyanna-ish hyper-optimism at play in debates about the Net's role in advancing liberation of those peoples who are being subjected to tyrannical rule across the planet.

But Morozov simply doesn't know when to quit. His relentless and highly repetitive critique goes well overboard. We can all agree that technology is just one of many tools that can be harnessed to keep the power of the State in check or advance important civic / charitable causes; other factors and forces play an even more important role in promoting democracy and, in particular, ending tyranny. Yet, in his zeal to counter those who have placed too great an emphasis on the role of information technology, Morozov himself has gone too far in the opposite extreme in The Net Delusion by suggesting that technology's role in transforming States or politics is either mostly irrelevant or even, at times, counter-productive.

The more profound problem with Morozov's thesis is that, if he is correct that the Net poses such risks, or undermines the cause of democracy-promotion, isn't the logical recommendation that flows from it technology control or entertainment repression? He never really makes it clear how far he'd go to put the information genie back in the bottle since he simply refuses to be nailed down on specifics int he book. But his tone throughout the book -- speaking of the Net as "a great danger," and "a threat" with many "negative side effects" -- seems to suggest that some form of technological control or information repression may be necessary.

Morozov is on somewhat stronger footing in highlighting the paradoxical danger of voluntary information exposure in an age of ubiquitous digital connectivity and communications. But let's say it is true that social networking tools and other digital technologies which allow greater online personalization and socialization also potentially facilitate increased government surveillance by the State. What are we to do about that? Again, he doesn't really say.

He also scores some points for rightly pointing to the hypocrisy at play in the United States today -- by both government and corporations --" when it comes to the promotion of Net freedom globally. American leaders in both government and business need to better align their actions with their rhetoric when it comes to the interaction of government and technology. Too often, both groups are guilty of talking a big game about the Internet and freedom, only to later take steps to undermine that cause. But, strangely, he continues on to suggest that we should simply get used to the increasing politicization of the Net, even though it's unclear how that would help his cause.

To summarize, Morozov is quite right about the excessive euphoria currently surrounding the relationship of the Net to politics and regime change, but I think he's gone a bit overboard in The Net Delusion.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Excellent, Realistic Take on Internet Freedom 6. Januar 2011
Von Kevin D - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The Net Delusion by Evgeny Morozov is an instant-classic in the field of technology studies that will be of interest to both serious scholars of the global Internet and those interested in making sense of the widespread excitement about using technology for advancing goals such as individual freedom.

Morozov's starting point is the belief, promoted by everyone from world leaders to prominent bloggers, that the Internet is an emancipatory agent. Millions of dollars have been spent guided by the belief that if unfettered Internet access is made available globally, especially in repressive countries, democracy will prevail because citizens will be empowered to speak freely, coordinate politically, etc. Morozov convincingly argues that the truth is far more nuanced and difficult. Although much of the rhetoric and policy in this area comes from the belief that technology has been an essential tool in promoting individual freedom throughout history, most notably being arguments about samizdat's role in ending the Cold War, Morozov provides a very readable explanation of how this metaphorical thinking is misguided.

Instead, he argues that the Internet is subject to the power of the state and therefore is largely impotent as a mechanism for promoting democracy. He shows that throughout the world, the Internet is a) more likely to be used for entertainment purposes, b) censored in ways that are not easily surmountable, c) used a tool for propaganda by both governments and individuals that are not pro-West, and d) used for spying on dissidents.

The Net Delusion is thoroughly entertaining throughout, but that doesn't stop it from digging into some very serious subjects. The final chapters provide an excellent explanation of the history and philosophy of technology - tough subjects that are rarely considered, least of all in such an approachable manner. Finally, Morozov closes with what he calls a cyber-realist manifesto to guide thinking going forward. There are certainly bits to quibble with throughout the book, but overall, it is an excellent work and highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Net Delusion 22. Dezember 2011
Von Rolf Dobelli - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Social studies scholar Evgeny Morozov may occasionally be cranky and stylistically conflicted, but his original arguments provide refreshing insights. He debunks nearly religious beliefs about the intrinsically positive power of the Internet and total information access. Morozov demonstrates how propagating this optimistic view of the web drowns out more subtle positions and keeps governmental and societal attention focused on less meaningful activities. getAbstract recommends this worthy polemic to those engaged in cyberculture, those trying to decipher cultural change, and those dedicated to understanding and promoting freer societies.

5.0 von 5 Sternen best book about geopolitics and the Internet 9. Januar 2011
Von Peter J. Fried - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
The Net Delusion is the first non-academic book to place the Internet in the proper geopolitical and historical settings. It's written by someone who has deep familiarity with latest developments in both global affairs and technology - and the resulting book is an extremely well-informed text that provides a much-needed correction to some of the wild and irresponsible cyber-utopian claims of pundits like Tom Friedman or Clay Shirky.

The Net Delusion was a pleasure to read. Morosov is a skillful and funny narrator with a dark sense of humor (perhaps, the product of his Eastern European roots?) who is amazingly well-read; the book builds on fields as diverse as sociology, philosophy, anthropology, and history but is also rich in examples and anecdotes - it never gets boring. I found Morosov's insights into the Cold War roots of the current e-euphoria are particularly enlightening...

Morosov doesn't shy from controversy, providing one of the sharpest critiques of the US government's affair with "Internet freedom" to date (The Net Delusion makes a convincing case that in the long term it's likely to cause more harm than good to the broader democratic project). Silicon Valley gets plenty of bad rap too - for its complicity in enabling censorship in countries like China, in stealing user privacy, in facilitating surveillance by aurhotriaan governments...

The Net Delusion manages to pull off the impossible: to simultaneously appeal to geeks who read Wired and policy wonks who read Foreign Affairs - and to remain highly readable throughout. Solid five-stars.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Read this as entertainment; factually incorrect in many instances 10. Juli 2013
Von anonymous - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
If I had it to do over, I would not spent money on this book. Within the first chapter "The Google Doctrine," I found several pieces of information that I know to be "not true," at about one inaccuracy per page. The fact that there are no footnotes speaks volumes. Read this book for entertainment, not for honesty. The author is so off base, I would put it forward that he is some sort of propagandist. For whom, I don't know. Take this author "with a grain of salt." His words are suspect.
