About the book: The content that is allowed on the Internet in China has always been strictly regulated; unsuitable content is organized under twelve general categories. As a result, guerrilla-style digital warfare is waged between the Chinese government and high-tech libertarians. The goal of Internet regulation for the authorities is to provide a “healthy” environment for both political and economic development.
