This chapter presents the book's rationale which is to provide more contemporary perspectives to the nature, effects, and consequences of global networks and information flows. The plurality of views expressed here covers international law, global inequities, modern practice of war, governmental actions, and culture—all of which are affected by current global information flows. Conflicts over control of information flows help define who holds power in the global information economy. Globalization's biggest enabler is the Internet, which has now become the single most important network facilitating most global information flows. Moreover, transformations operated by the Internet continue to accelerate exponentially, strengthening and confirming the growing extent of the global networked society.

Keywords:   global networks, information flows, international law, global inequities, modern war, culture, Internet
