About the Author

Cherian Georgem is an assistant professor in the School of Communication and Information at the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.


This is an erudite and, at times, witty summation of the decade-long efforts on the part of two Asian authoritarian governments to alternatively co-opt, rein in and control the new media. It also offers good discursive asides on democratic culture and media culture in general. . . . George's book will remain the standard on Singapore and Malaysia cyber media for some time.
