The Age of Surveillance Capitalism

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

Shoshana Zuboff
In this provocative work, Zuboff introduces the concept of “surveillance capitalism,” a global system of behavioral modification that seeks to influence consumption patterns and drive profits. Sustained by vast amounts of data, this emerging iteration of capitalism operates with little to no oversight and poses a grave new threat to humanity. Zuboff examines in depth these dangerous societal implications while arming us with the best weapon we currently have: information of our own.
