Wu expands on the history of information systems from his earlier book ("Who Controls the Internet")by focusing on the history of AT&T and its development. Whereas his earlier book looked at the response of states via law to the rise of the internet, Wu looks at the cycles of information from new (open) to maturity (closed) and argues for constraint of power derived from the control of information.
