CitationJonathan Zittrain, What's in a Name?, 55 Fed. Comm. L. J. 153 (2002) (reviewing Milton L. Mueller, Ruling the Root: Internet Governance and the Taming of Cyberspace (2002)).
AbstractIn the spring of 1998, the U.S. government told the Internet: Govern yourself. This unfocused order - a blandishment, really, expressed as an awkward "statement of policy" by the Department of Commerce, carrying no direct force of law - came about because the management of obscure but critical centralized Internet functions was at a political crossroads.
This essay reviews Milton Mueller's book Ruling the Root, and the ways in which it accounts for what happened both before and after that crossroads.
