    This dissertation tries to provide insights into the dynamics of Internet-politics relations by looking at how the Internet was used in transition period - within two different political circumstances: the late period of Suharto and the post-Suharto period - for political activism. Using Indonesia as a local site of the nexus struggles over the choice, use and transformation of the Internet, this dissertation attempts to show how the Internet interplays with power struggles, and how the creation and assertion of identity become a focal point of contests over power.
