The Age of Surveillance Capitalism

The Fight for a Human Future at the New Frontier of Power

Shoshana Zuboff

The Age of Surveillance Capitalism is a groundbreaking examination of the power of digital technologies and the threat they pose to humanity. Shoshana Zuboff provides insights into the unprecedented form of power called "surveillance capitalism" and the quest by powerful corporations to predict and control our behavior. Through vivid examples, Zuboff illustrates how this threat has shifted from a totalitarian Big Brother state to a ubiquitous digital architecture. This book is a wake-up call, urging us to take action to safeguard our democracy, freedom, and human future.

Dives into the largest act of capitalist colonisation ever attempted - the colonisation of our minds, our behaviour, our free will, our very selves.      source
It’s pub date for Shoshana Zuboff’s The Age of Surveillance Capitalism. To call it “an important book” is gross understatement. I suspect that 20 years from now this book will join the likes of The Wealth of Nations on the all-time classics list.      source
