Digital empires, the global battle to regulate technology, Anu Bradford.

In 'Digital Empires', Anu Bradford examines the ideological origins, societal implications, and the relative global influence of three contrasting regulatory approaches towards the digital economy. Throughout, she compares the EU's approach with both the US-based techno-libertarian model and China's authoritarian approach. At a moment of time when digital societies are at an inflection point, this book lays bare the choices we face as societies and individuals, explains the forces that shape those choices, and spells out the stakes involved in making those choices
