Harvard professor emerita Shoshana Zuboff discusses the growth, prevalence and ramifications of “surveillance capitalism” through the lenses of business and the economy, privacy and ethics, politics and law, as well as the intersections of these systems. She provides a well-researched, harrowing tale of contemporary and future business practices. While Zuboff cautions you to protect your privacy and human rights, she provides scant guidance on how to do so, unfortunately. Nevertheless, Zuboff’s reportage matters to anyone interested in e-commerce and privacy rights, and to Google or Facebook users – in other words, to everyone.
