Internet topics such as privacy and electronic surveillance, data protection, cyber-crime, intellectual property, and e-commerce throw up legal and regulatory issues that are dizzying in their complexity and range. Indeed, in the last decade or two especially, such questions have generated a huge and unwieldy body of scholarly and practical literature. This new collection from Routledge's Critical Concepts in Law series meets the need for an authoritative reference work to help researchers and students navigate and make better sense of it. The collection is made up of four volumes which bring together the best and most influential canonical and cutting-edge thinking. It assembles key works spanning theoretical developments and empirical research which uses a range of qualitative and quantitative methods. With a full index, and thoughtful introductions, newly written by the learned editors, Law and the Internet traces the progress of research and highlights the challenges for future explorations. The collection will be valued by scholars, students, and researchers-as well as by technologists and practitioners of Internet law-as a vital and enduring resource.
