This is a comprehensive analysis of the Third World based on three historical currents: independence, liberation, and revolution. The author puts forth the philosophy that the struggle of the Third World for a new international economic, information, and communication order is interrelated with and parallel to the struggles in the capitlist and socialist worlds. It is primarily a book on communication--what takes place between peoples and their political, economic and cultural environments. From an historical viewpoit, the volume seeks to provide a link within seemingly disconnected world events.

The People's Liberation Army in the Information Age

A July 1998 conference, held in San Diego, California, brought together Chinese military experts to discuss the non-hardware side of the People's Liberation Army's modernization. The result is a comprehensive examination of the critical software side, covering topics as diverse as civil-military relations, professionalism, logistics, training, doctrine, systems integration, and force structure. The 13 chapters present a picture of a PLA that has learned much about the right software for successful combat performance but is facing variable success in implementing the necessary changes throughout the system. The Chinese military's progress in the areas discussed in the papers will ultimately determine whether the PLA will transform itself into a peer competitor with the United States in the 21st century or remain merely a regional military power. The conference was sponsored jointly by the RAND Center for Asia-Pacific Policy and the Taiwan-based Chinese Council of Advanced Policy Studies.

Conflict over information has become a central part of twenty-first century politics and culture. The sites of struggle are numerous, the actors beyond count. Currents of liberation and exploitation course through the debates about Snowden and surveillance; Anonymous and the 'Arab Spring'; search engines and social media. In Information Politics, Tim Jordan identifies all these issues in relation to a general understanding of the nature of an information politics that emerged with the rise of mass digital cultures and the internet. He also locates it within a field of rebellion and liberation that is populated by many interwoven social and political conflicts including gender, class and ecology. The exploitations both facilitated by, and contested through, increases in information flows; the embedding of information technologies in daily life; and the intersection of network and control protocols are all examined inInformation Politics. Anyone hoping to get to grips with the rapidly changing terrain of digital culture and conflict should start here.
