The Real Cyber War- The Political Economy of Internet Freedom

A conversation with Dr. Shawn Powers

Professor Shawn Powers of Georgia State University discusses his new book The Real Cyber War: The Political Economy of Internet Freedom (coauthored by Michael Jablonski). As described on the publisher page, the book offers a “Contemporary discussion surrounding the role of the internet in society is dominated by words like: internet freedom, surveillance, cybersecurity, Edward Snowden and, most prolifically, cyber war. Behind the rhetoric of cyber war is an on-going state-centered battle for control of information resources. Shawn Powers and Michael Jablonski conceptualize this real cyber war as the utilization of digital networks for geopolitical purposes, including covert attacks against another state’s electronic systems, but also, and more importantly, the variety of ways the internet is used to further a state’s economic and military agendas.” You can read more about the book on Amazon and follow Dr. Powers on Twitter @shawnpowers and the official book website
