MEDIA REVIEWS

'This book will be of great interest to historians of the United States as they explore the cultural transformations of the digital age.' -Andrew Diamond, Paris-Sorbonne-University, France

'Digital capitalism marks an epochal moment of historical transition, both in society and in thought. Proliferating digital devices are enabling a rapidly growing share of all human activity to be appropriated by capital. What does this signify for labour? The contributors to this volume a welcome mix of seasoned analysts and younger scholars give us tools for forging the critical reason we will need in order to understand our swiftly changing reality.'

-Dan Schiller, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA

'Digital Labour and Prosumer Capitalism is a brilliant exploration of the contradictions within the social relations and the ideological underpinnings of technological utopianism and the so-called sharing economy.'

-David Bensman, Rutgers University, USA

'This collection is excellent reading for anyone wanting to better understand digital capitalism and why it needs to be replaced with an alternative, just, and democratic societal formation.'

-Christian Fuchs, University of Westminster, UK
