T.D. Wilson, Information Research For anyone with an interest in how the giant technology companies are affecting society, and the problems of regulating their activities, this volume is essential reading. Any course in economics or politics should put it on the reading list ... Moore and Tambini are to be congratulated in having assembled a group of expert authors who appear to have worked to an agreed brief to put before the reader the issues that should concern all of us.
Frank Pasquale, author of The Black Box Society: The Secret Algorithms that Control Money and Information Digital Dominance is a critically important volume to guide citizens and policymakers as governments around the world wake up to the power of technology giants. Convening diverse and authoritative voices in social science and law, this book presents cutting edge research that is essential to understanding the role of Google, Facebook, Apple, and Amazon in our economy and politics. This work both addresses immediate controversies and promises to be of lasting
relevance to those concerned about the effect of technology on society - and how societies might better channel technological development to serve, rather than dominate, humanity.
