How to Bypass Internet Censorship :: Book Review

The book How to Bypass Internet Censorship using free software tools is now out. The book is distributed on The interesting aspect about this book is that it is created using collaborative content development system over a period of (just) five days by various contributors.

In the past I had blogged about how to bypass the filtering systems using translation services like Babelfish, however I think the book would be more informative for all.

About The Book

Because of concerns about the effect of Internet blocking mechanisms, and the implications of censorship, many individuals and groups are working hard to ensure that the Internet, and the information on it, are freely available to everyone who wants it.

This book documents simple circumvention techniques such as a cached file or web proxy, and also describes more complex methods using Tor, which stands for The Onion Router, involving a sophisticated network of proxy servers.

FLOSS Manuals publications will always be available for free in HTML and PDF from the FLOSS Manuals Website. Each book sale generates $2.50 (USD). 100% of this income goes back into the development of more manuals about free software.

You can also order a dead tree version of this book or just download it.
