Product Description


"I think that is is a relief to read a young academic who refers to Marx and Engels...I really recommend this book and hope that also some politicians are going to read it, so we can have a more cooperative and less competitive future."

Jesper Toekke, Cybernetics & Human Knowing, Vol. 15, No. 2, 2008

"Fuchs's approach to social theory is reminiscent of Jürgen Habermas's in more than one way. ... Fuchs provides a thoughtful analysis that not only engages the most prominent literature but also produces a clear voice which cuts through many of the clichés regarding the information society."

Eran Fisher, Journal of Communication 59 (4) 

"Without building critical tools described in this book, the moment for positive social and political change may indeed turn dystopian, as the opportunity evaporates to conceptualize society as cooperative systems of interactions."

Marcus Breen, International Journal of Media and Cultural Politics 5 (3)
