About the Book

"This book explores digital technologies from a distinctive postmodern perspective. Contrary to common belief, Sassower argues that digital technologies have allowed for the centralization of economic power. Further, where new digital devices offer the potential to express freedom and bring about revolutions they also allow for increasing possibilities for surveillance of citizens. The digital age and the current state of the global political economy are therefore linked and focusing on the promise of new technologies without locating them in their political structures and institutions or economic realities can be misleading and dangerous." -- from the publisher
