Index on Censorship: China Issue

Rebecca MacKinnon reposts her contribution to a special China issue of Index on Censorship, and summarizes other contributions:

Index on Censorship has published a journal issue devoted to China. Unfortunately their publication is subscription-only and the content is not freely available on the web. If you belong to a university or or have access to a library that subscribes to it, you’re in luck. Otherwise, Routledge is happy to sell you access…or contact the authors directly…

My own contribution, “Cyber Zone,” can be found at the bottom of this post. It’s an overview of how people in China are using the Internet to push the boundaries of free speech. It picks up on an idea that came out of a conversation I had earlier this year with internet author Yang Hengjun that the Internet in China is kind of like a “special political zone” – it’s not totally free but it’s a bit freer than other spaces, in general.
