Deibert tracks the transformation of Europe from the medieval to the modern and then turns to the hypermedia age, where new digital technologies such as the Internet, encryption, and high-resolution satellite imaging favor nonterritorial institutions and communities, shifting political authority and policymaking from individual nations to transnational corporations, global financial markets, and nongovernmental organizations and activists.

James N. Rosenau

Depicts the links across some six centuries of history and a vast array of modern and postmodern concepts, leaving the reader with a keen sense of both the continuities and changes that have marked the human condition. The book is a 'must' read for anyone eager to probe beneath the surface of world affairs.
