My firend and colleague Cristina Venegas just published the following book. Sounds juicy!
Digital Dilemmas: The State, the Individual, and Digital Media in Cuba
Rutgers University Press, 208 pages, February 2010
The contentious debate in Cuba over Internet use and digital media primarily focuses on three issues—maximizing the potential for economic and cultural development, establishing stronger ties to the outside world, and changing the hierarchy of control. A growing number of users decry censorship and insist on personal freedom in accessing the web, while the centrally managed system benefits the government in circumventing U.S. sanctions against the country and in controlling what limited capacity exists.
