This book focuses on the changing face of cyberspace, especially in Asia, with emphasis on rights and freedoms to use cyberspace. Issues related to cyberspace including security, identity, and resistance are highlighted, with a focus on the problems countries such as China and India face in maintaining a balance between national/cultural security, resistance, and economic development. Phases of cyberspace regulation including open commons, access denied, access controlled, and access contested are discussed. The book discusses how China’s foreign policies and international strategies for cyberspace clash with the interests of other global powers including the United States and India. The impact on cyberspace practices of issues related to gender and sexuality is also explored.

Keywords:   cyberspace, national/cultural security, identity, resistance, economic development, foreign policies, international strategies, United States, India
