Re: nettime: Three Book Reviews - Richard Barbrook


I would just like to point out that the 'Communication and Cyberspace' book
is only available in England as an expensive import at 55 pounds sterling!
As McKenzie Wark has pointed out, the Net might be global but academic book
publishing isn't....

This is a pity because this book contains some very informative essays. The
best of them demonstrate that we don't have to choose between the two sides
of the spurious debate between the hype-merchants of the Californian
ideology and the doom 'n' gloom prophets of neo-Luddism!!
