> around the world,
> this second volume considers the Net as it intersects with 
> various important
> discourses of our time.  In the current charged international 
> climate, as we
> consider the role the Net has played in recent events, the 
> role it continues
> to play around the world, and the ways in which it is linked to wider
> issues, these studies which give voice to discourses of 
> Otherness are more
> timely than ever.
