Digital Disconnect: How Capitalism Is Turning the Internet Against Democracy
Hailed as "important" (Truthdig) and praised for its "excellent insight" (Patricia J. Williams, The Nation), Digital Disconnect, by activist and "exemplary public intellectual" (Choice) Robert W. McChesney, skewers the assumption that a society drenched in information in a digital age is inherently a democratic one. A prescient examination of the relationship between the Internet and the economy--one that has become even more relevant since its publication in hardcover--the book argues that capitalism's colonization of the Internet has spurred the collapse of credible journalism and made the Internet an unparalleled apparatus for government and corporate surveillance. "A provocative and far-reaching account of how capitalism has shaped the Internet in the United States" (Kirkus Reviews) and "an excellent analysis of the problem where a medium with the capacity to empower people is itself becoming a tool of social control" (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.
