The Internet in the Arab World: Egypt and Beyond is the first book to offer a comprehensive and up-to-date guide to the status of the Internet and its uses and effects in Egypt and the Arab world. Tackling the issue in a systematic, scientific manner, this book also examines Islamic online communications, online censorship, and Internet use by the civic society as an alternative channel for its mostly oppressed voices. This book is a valuable addition to the libraries of students, scholars, and anyone interested in information technologies and the Arab world.
