Hailed as "illuminating" (The Nation) and "informed and engaging" (Counterpunch), Digital Disconnect, by nationally known media expert and activist Robert McChesney--"an exemplary public intellectual" (Choice)—skewers the assumption that, in the digital age, a society drenched in information is a democratic one. A provocative and prescient examination of the relationship between the Internet and the economy--one that has become ever more relevant since the book's publication in hardcover--McChesney argues that capitalism’s colonization of the Internet has spurred the collapse of credible journalism and made the Internet an unparalleled apparatus for government and corporate surveillance. Called "a valuable addition to the literature on the digital age" (Kirkus) and "an excellent analysis" (Daily Kos), Digital Disconnect urges us to reclaim the democratizing potential of the digital revolution while we still can.
