The Geopolitics of Information
Series Editors:Dan Schiller, Pradip Thomas, and Yuezhi Zhao
The geopolitics of information has moved to the center of the encompassing and increasingly conflicted question of who will shape the global political economy, and how. The dispensation of the worlds communication systems and information resources constitutes both a domain of political-economic rivalry conducted by states and corporations, and a field of social contestation involving a wider set of social actors. This new series is broadly demarcated to foreground both interstate rivalries and societal struggles, and to encompass both emergent pressure points and environing social-historical dynamics. We are now soliciting book manuscripts in the 60,000 word range -- short, well-documented, critical studies of topical issues and trends.
