Review: "The Internet in Indonesia's New Democracy is a detailed study of the political and cultural practices surrounding the provision and consumption of the Internet in Indonesia at the turn of the twenty-first century. Hill and Sen detail the emergence of the Internet into Indonesia in the mid-1990s, and cover its growth through the dramatic economic and political crises of 1997-98 and the subsequent transition to democracy." "Conceptually, the Internet is seen as a global phenomenon, with global implications; however, this book develops a way of thinking about the Internet within the limits of geo-political categories of nations and provinces. The political turmoil in Indonesia provides a unique context in which to understand the specific local and national consequences of a global and universal technology."--Jacket
