The book is a revealing look at how Washington works today – and how citizens successfully fought back.Written by the core Internet figures – video gamers, Tea Partiers, tech titans, lefty activists and ordinary Americans among them – who defeated a pair of special interest bills called SOPA (“Stop Online Piracy Act”) and PIPA (“Protect IP Act”), Hacking Politics provides the first detailed account of the glorious, grand chaos that led to the demise of that legislation and helped foster an Internet-based network of amateur activists.Included are more than thirty original contributions from across the political spectrum, featuring writing by Internet freedom activist Aaron Swartz- Lawrence Lessig of Harvard Law School- novelist Cory Doctorow- Rep.

Zoe Lofgren (D-CA.)- Jamie Laurie (of the alt-rock/hip-hop group The Flobots)- Ron Paul- Mike Masnick, CEO and founder of Techdirt- Kim Dotcom, internet entrepreneur- Tiffiniy Cheng, co-founder and co-director of Fight for the Future- Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit- Nicole Powers of Suicide Girls- Josh Levy, Internet Campaign Director at Free Press, and many more.
