"The Web provides everybody with access to information. That makes those in power nervous. Transparency is the best defense against further narrowing of information access and the starting point for rolling back existing barriers. "Access Denied" provides the definitive analysis of government justifications for denying their own people access to some information and also documents global Internet filtering practices on a country-by-country basis. This is timely and important."--Jonathan Aronson, Annenberg School for Communication, University of Southern California
"No one had a clear sense of the nature of Internet censorship until now. This extraordinary work maps the unfreedom of the Net. Unfortunately, that state is becoming the norm."--Lawrence Lessig
"In "Access Denied" an unlikely avant-garde of scholars, lawyers, hacktivists, and computer programmers come together to combat efforts by repressive regimes, corporate firms, and intelligence agencies to surveil, filter, and block the Internet. Through critical analysis, regional surveys, and the use of innovative software, the authors reveal the penumbra of a networked global civil society emerging from the Dark Side's efforts to eclipse the Internet. Everyone who supports open thought and the free flow of information should read "Access Denied.""--James Der Derian, Director, Global Security Program, Watson Institute for International Studies, Brown University
This work includes a study of Internet blocking and filtering around the world: analyses by leading researchers and survey results that document filtering practices in dozens of countries.Many countries around the world block or filter Internet content, denying access to information that they deem too sensitive for ordinary citizens - most often about politics, but sometimes relating to sexuality, culture, or religion. "Access Denied" documents and analyzes Internet filtering practices in more than three dozen countries, offering the first rigorously conducted study of an accelerating trend.Internet filtering takes place in more than three dozen states worldwide, including many countries in Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa. Related Internet content-control mechanisms are also in place in Canada, the United States and a cluster of countries in Europe.Drawing on a just-completed survey of global Internet filtering undertaken by the OpenNet Initiative (a collaboration of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School, the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto, the Oxford Internet Institute at Oxford University, and the University of Cambridge) and relying on work by regional experts and an extensive network of researchers, "Access Denied" examines the political, legal, social, and cultural contexts of Internet filtering in these states from a variety of perspectives.Chapters discuss the mechanisms and politics of Internet filtering, the strengths and limitations of the technology that powers it, the relevance of international law, ethical considerations for corporations that supply states with the tools for blocking and filtering, and the implications of Internet filtering for activist communities that increasingly rely on Internet technologies for communicating their missions.Reports on Internet content regulation in forty different countries follow, with each two-page country profile outline the types of content blocked by category and documenting key findings.

An edited work, with ten primary authors, it actually reflects the collaborative efforts of an international network of collaborators, and can safely be considered the seminal basic reference on this topic.
The first 150 pages include an introduction and six chapters, on measuring global internet filtering, the politics and mechanisms of
control, tools and technology for filtering, filtering and the international system, corporate filtering, and ethics. The rest of the book, 285 pages, is taken up by regional overviews and then country-specific summaries of filtering policy.
The motives for filtering are three: politics & power; social norms & morals, and security concerns.
Two types of filtering occur: announced, and disguised. Announced filters show a blocking page, unannounced filters pretend there was an error. Blocking anc be of entire sites, or specific pages identified by keywords.
The eye-opener for me was that filtering is not just on content, but on capability. Skype and Google Earth are two of the primary capabilities that are being denied to the people around the world by repressive ignorant governments who would rather have perpetual poverty than allow the people to leverage every aspect of the Internet including free global communications.
This is a first class intellectual, social, economic, and political contribution to the literature.
I recommend the following ten books along with this one:
The leadership of civilization building: Administrative and civilization theory, symbolic dialogue, and citizen skills for the 21st century
The Big Switch: Rewiring the World, from Edison to Google
The Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid: Eradicating Poverty Through Profits (Wharton School Publishing Paperbacks)
The Wealth of Networks: How Social Production Transforms Markets and Freedom
The Web of Inclusion: Architecture for Building Great Organizations
The Ingenuity Gap: Facing the Economic, Environmental, and Other Challenges of an Increasingly Complex and Unpredictable Future
Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom
The Pirate's Dilemma: How Youth Culture Is Reinventing Capitalism
The Difference: How the Power of Diversity Creates Better Groups, Firms, Schools, and Societies
Collective Intelligence: Creating a Prosperous World at Peace
Even if you don't read the whole thing, this is a must-have title for your bookshelf since there is no other resource out there like this. And it should be required reading in every cyberlaw class in America. Importantly, it also contains a very helpful chapter on the mechanics of Net filtering for those not familiar with the technical issues in play here.
Very highly recommended.
Money wasted! - A lot useless BS.
Don't buy this book if you think you're going to learn anything about the massive spying that is taking place on American citizens by US corporations and organizations. It's my opinion from observations dating back to the 1980s, that the computer as we know it today is designed primarily as a "Information Pump" to observe the habits and mental processes of the average person for political gain and global objectives -- One World Government, if you will.
If you keep a firewall log, then you must know that there is massive intrusions to your privacy.
Access Denied is aptly named because you won't find anything of value concerning protecting your access and privacy. It would be interesting to see the privacy agreement that Microsoft Corp. signed with IBM in the early 1980s. When the IBM personal computer DOS, then later, Microsoft Windows was written by Bill Gates and company Americans were entering the information age in more ways than they could imagine. Why is that you ask? Because around this time you have the seminal beginnings of certain political/power groups taking over America by closely observing each citizen's thought process through computer technology.
With each new version of MS Windows, more people were using computers for Internet browsing as well as using e-mail. Now with Google, Facebook, YouTube and other social sites building profiles on each person and cross-referencing their IP address they know exactly who they are, what they like and what they think.
Americans are gladly sharing much of their personal information, pictures, videos and thoughts. It's quite obvious that most Americans are trusting individuals and would probably be in complete denial that their information could have much value to others. But from the viewpoint of these political groups(see below) -- they are sheep that don't understand the politics of power and just how easy it would be to steal the American dream.
For more information concerning the One World Government, try searhing Wikipedia for: Council on Foreign Relations.
To go into more detail about this line of thought for starters I would recommend try searching for the free PDF file download "None Dare Call it Conspiracy" by Gary Allen
Do yourself a favor see if you can locate a good firewall that will keep logs and block intrusions. There are professional firewalls out there that do this or you can make a search for a firewall named Sygate Personal Firewall Pro 5.0 This is the firewall that I use. Sygate was bought out and the original new versions and company are no longer in existence(perhaps it was too good). You need to make a search on the Internet for the old version 5.0 - don't use any version other than 5.0 Make sure to go to options(if you locate this firewall) and un-click the update button -- if you don't, you will get a modified firewall that is probably untrustworthy. Explore the options carefully and you will find that you can filter out a lot of undesirable intrusions.
I would recommend a few other things, the first has to do with your router/modem. Check to see if you can set the security access status to as high as possible as well as blocking all ports that are unnecessary.Check Wikipedia for "port numbers", then by using this list, block all unnecessary ports (ports that you don't use-which will be just about all of them)
Next download and start using the browser Firefox with the addition of NoScript. No script can be installed free-you can give a donation if you find it useful.
I hope this review will save somebody money and time.
