A prescient examination of the relationship between the Internet and the economyÂone that has become even more relevant since its publication in hardcoverÂthe book argues that capitalismâs colonization of the Internet has spurred the collapse of credible journalism and made the Internet an unparalleled apparatus for government and corporate surveillance.
ÂA provocative and far-reaching account of how capitalism has shaped the Internet in the United Statesâ (Kirkus Reviews) and Âan excellent analysis of the problem where a medium with the capacity to empower people is itself becoming a tool of social controlâ (Daily Kos), Digital Disconnect is both a groundbreaking critique of the Internet and an urgent call to reclaim the democratizing potential of the digital revolution while we still can.
