Format: Paperback
For anyone interested in cyberlaw, this is a must-read. Cohen has been developing a powerful critical & cultural theory of the net for years, and this book brings it all together in an engaging and provocative synthesis. The carefully considered work of one of our deepest thinkers about online life, Configuring the Networked Self will take its place in the canon of cyberlaw classics that includes Boyle's Shamans, Lessig's Code, Benkler's Wealth of Networks.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Robert Greer on October 4, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Julie Cohen writes persuasively about how legal-liberal assumptions impoverish public debate over tech policy. Cohen is very well-versed in modern philosophy of mind and employs this knowledge to her arguments adroitly. Her argument questioning orthodox economic assumptions about policy support her tech thesis well, but also stands just as strong on its own as an independent critique of economicized thinking generally. Although the prose can be a little dense, especially if the reader doesn't have a background in philosophy, the book is fabulous cover-to-cover.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book 6 months ago, but other items kept getting ahead of it on my reading list. When I started it last week, by the end of the first chapter I was kicking myself for not reading it sooner.

Cohen does an amazing job of articulating what's missing from legal scholarship in key information policy issues, providing a sound theoretical basis for her arguments, and calling for a pragmatic, well-researched, scholarly agenda filling in those gaps.
