The Internet as a global communications space is a self-organising entity that has proved to be problematic for regulators. In this important new book, the author uses various analytical tools from network science to explore the subject of Internet regulation.

Andres Guadamuz argues that in order to regulate cyberspace one must also understand how the network operates. He takes an in-depth look at the challenges posed by the Internet's inherent architectural characteristics of a complex dynamic network. In doing so, he considers complexity theory and its increasingly prominent role within a wide variety of disciplines.
