Product description


'Lawless is realistic but optimistic about how things on the Internet got so bad and what it will take to fix them. Suzor compellingly describes how constitutionalism and the rule of law can adapt to digital spaces.' James Grimmelmann, Cornell University, New York

'In Lawless, Nicolas P. Suzor doesn't just raise questions about the power tech companies wield, he sets out to answer them, with urgency and care. He offers a lucid, ambitious, wide-ranging, and cautiously hopeful analysis of how platforms govern – and how they should – that comes at just the right moment.' Tarleton Gillespie, Microsoft Research New England and author of Custodians of the Internet

'Suzor's book is a critically important account on the cutting edge of a global sea change in how we imagine our rights will be protected – or not – in a world connected by networked technology.' Kate Klonick, St John's University, New York

'Suzor takes readers on a journey through the challenges and pitfalls of Internet governance. His book is a thoughtful examination of why the constitutional values of legitimacy, transparency and due process are the touchstones we need for a better internet.' Primavera De Filippi, author of Blockchain and the Law

'Suzor's book is a truly thorough look at one of today's most pressing issues and provides real guidance on how we can move forward, together.' Jillian York, Director for International Freedom of Expression, Electronic Frontier Foundation

'General readers and upper-level political science, business, information technology, and law students will benefit from the evidence Suzor has gathered in order to grapple with his call for corporations' self-imposed constitutionalization.' H. L. Katz, Choice

Book Description

Suzor presents a rigorous, accessible overview of how the Internet is governed by technology companies that are themselves under immense pressure from governments and others to regulate what individuals do online. This timely and insightful book advocates a groundbreaking new approach: a digital constitutionalism to protect human rights online.
