Product description

The Boy Who Could Change the World
The Writings of Aaron Swartz

Paperback with matte-effect card cover and matte inside pages.
Item in very good condition with only minor signs of rubbing to outer corners of cover.

Information from the back cover:

"In January 2013, Aaron Swartz, under arrest and threatened with thirty-five years' imprisonment, committed suicide. He was twenty-six. But in his short life he had changed the world: reshaping the internet, questioning our assumptions about intellectual property, and creating some of the tools we use in our daily online lives. He was also a leading critic of the politics of the Web.

"In this collection of his writings that spans over a decade, Swartz displays his passion for and in-depth knowledge of intellectual property, copyright, and the architecture of the Internet. 'The Boy Who Could Change the World' contains the life's work of one of the most original minds of our time."
