“A strange, wondrous, challenging, enriching book….Beautiful and powerful…you will not encounter another book like it.”<_o3a_p>

National Review online<_o3a_p>


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.

Mark Helprin was educated at Harvard, Princeton, and Oxford and served in the Israeli Army, Israeli Air Force, and British Merchant Navy. He is the author of, among other titles,A Dove of the East and Other Stories,Refiner’s Fire,Winter’s Tale, andA Soldier of the Great War. He lives in Virginia.
