"A strange, wondrous, challenging, enriching book....Beautiful and will not encounter another book like it."--National Review online In Digital Barbarism, bestselling novelist Mark Helprin (Winter's Tale, A Soldier of the Great War) offers a ringing Jeffersonian defense of private property in the age of digital culture, with its degradation of thought and language and collectivist bias against the rights of individual creators. A timely, cogent, and important attack on the popular Creative Commons movement, Digital Barbarism provides rational, witty, and supremely wise support for the individual voice and its hard-won legal protections.
