In Search of Jefferson's Moose

Notes on the State of Cyberspace

David G. Post

Law and Current Events Masters

David Post, one of the nation's leading Internet scholars, here presents a pithy, colorful exploration of the still mostly undiscovered territory of cyberspace--what it is, how it works, and how it should be governed. Deftly drawing on Jefferson's Notes on the State of Virginia, Post vividly describes how the Internet actually functions from a technological, legal, and social perspective as he uniquely applies Jefferson's views on natural history, law, and governance in the New World to illuminate the complexities of cyberspace.
