Future Politics: Living together in a world transformed by tech description
It is uncontroversial to state that our world has been transformed by technology. But what are the implications of this revolution? To what extent should our lives be dictated by powerful digital systems… and on what terms? Jamie Susskind’s award-winning Future Politics examines the relentless digital innovation of our time, positing digital code as the architecture of our age, capable of directing our behaviour and thought. It challenges us to acknowledge that Digital is Political, and develop an appropriate response to this era-defining fact.
