She is one of the world’s most provocative and prescient thinkers – and has devoted her career to studying the rise of the digital. She looks at individual, organizational, and social consequences of this new era, and its relationship to the history and future of capitalism. She has previously published two seminal works The Age of the Smart Machine and Support Economy and has been called by the Financial Times: The true prophet of the digital age. Her new book The Age of Surveillance Capitalism is already a sensation. It explores the emergence of surveillance capitalism as the dominant form of information capitalism and its implications for individuals, society, and democracy in the twenty-first century. As Naomi Klein has said: “everyone needs to read this book as act of digital self-defence."
