To mark World Press Freedom Day (May 3, 2010) SAGE and Exact Editions are offering a 30 day subscription to Index on Censorship for only $0.99
The offer is available for the newly launched Index on Censorship app for the iphone or ipad, now available in the Apple Store. The app is free to download and gives users access to the first 21 pages of the latest issue. As part of the World Press Freedom Day offer, users will be able to upgrade to a 30-day subscription (normally $2.99) for just $0.99, giving them full access to the latest issue of Index on Censorship and the previous two years of back issues.
The latest issue, now published by SAGE, ‘Brave New Words: Is technology the saviour of free speech?’ examines how technology has transformed the business of censorship at the same time as revolutionising freedom of expression. Rebecca MacKinnon talks to Google about the fallout from China; Gus Hosein calls on governments to take privacy more seriously; and Wen Yunchao reveals the art of censorship in China.
Online personal subscriptions to Index on Censorship are available from Exact Editions. An annual subscription to Index on Censorship online is usually £18.00; a 30 day subscription will be available to new subscribers of the free iphone/ipad app for $0.99 between May 3rd and May 9th.
