Brave New Words (Index on Censorship)

Brave New Words: Volume 39 Issue 1 (March). The internet has not only been a revolution for free speech - it's reinvented censorship. Cyber utopia has brought with it new forms of control - and it's not just authoritarian regimes that are limiting access to what we read and watch.

In this issue Rebecca MacKinnon puts some tough questions to Google, about the fallout from China, Andrei Soldatov examines democracy’s last stand in Russia and internet expert Ron Deibert looks at the new controls on free speech online.

Also don’t miss an exclusive extract from Gurpreet Kaur Batti’s new play and Erik Gandini talking to Index about his award-winning film on the Italian media.
