The challenges to humanity posed by the digital future, the first detailed examination of the unprecedented form of power called “surveillance capitalism”, and the quest by powerful corporations to predict and control our behavior.
Shoshana Zuboff’s interdisciplinary breadth and depth enable her to come to grips with the social, political, business, and technological meaning of the changes taking place in our time. We are at a critical juncture in the confrontation between the vast power of giant high-tech companies and government, the hidden economic logic of surveillance capitalism, and the propaganda of machine supremacy that threaten to shape and control human life. Will the brazen new methods of social engineering and behavior modification threaten individual autonomy and democratic rights and introduce extreme new forms of social inequality? Or will the promise of the digital age be one of individual empowerment and democratization?
The Age of Surveillance Capitalism is neither a hand-wringing narrative of danger and decline nor a digital fairy tale. Rather, it offers a deeply reasoned and evocative examination of the contests over the next chapter of capitalism that will decide the meaning of information civilization in the 21st century. The stark issue at hand is whether we will be the masters of information and machines or its slaves.

I had originally expected much more mechanical account of the way in which Google and Facebook, and later Microsoft, learned to use data to craft advertising messages. Instead, the book turned out to be a thoughtful and philosophical work that reminded me in ambition to Thomas Pikkety's work and in content to the writing of Hannah Arendt. This is an important work that I desperately hope will catch the attention of policy makers and prompt an international framework of privacy and personal rights laws.
