The legal situation regarding the Internet is far from clear, despite its burgeoning use and in spite of the fact that it raises novel and complex challenges to existing regulatory regimes. Concerns about the application of forms of governance to child pornography, involving supranational bodies such as the EU and the Council of Europe and international bodies such as the UN, and a variety of other regulatory bodies, have been voiced from a number of quarters in recent years.

However there is, as yet, little general consensus among regulators on how to address this multi-national problem. This book examines the key issues relating to child pornography on the Internet, but argues that it should not be forgotten that child pornography is not an Internet specific problem, but rather a problem within society. Therefore it should be dealt with appropriately and not specifically in relation to the Internet, with law enforcement agencies taking new powers to deal with the Internet.

In Internet Child Pornography and The Law Yaman Akdeniz does an excellent job of applying responsible, thoughtful, scholarship to a subject often surrounded by misinformation. This is an important book for anyone interested in understanding how law and legal thinking must be reshaped to respond to globalization and new technologies.
Philip Jenkins, Pennsylvania State University, USA

Yaman Akdeniz’s book is an important and timely contribution to this area of research. It brings a coherent perspective to an otherwise fragmented, and at times contradictory, arena and provides a balanced perspective on what has become an increasingly emotive topic. This will be an invaluable source of information to all whose work relates to child pornography and will help inform both practitioners and policy makers.
Ethel Quayle, University College Cork, Ireland
