Transgression 2.0 is a carefully crafted and nuanced collective account of transgression in an age of social networks feeding revolutions, of the reign of software in election campaigns, of omnipresent porn and spam, the 'triumph' of Wikileaks, and of the endless amateur cultural production of everything. Full of tasty detail covering a range of highly contemporary issues, the book avoids hyper-optimistic or dismissive claims and offers new ways of understanding the dynamics of resistance and appropriation, creativity, emancipatory change and enclosure, that are core to transgression. This is a rare find for anyone looking for a balanced account of today's network- and software-reliant cultures in terms of their convoluted aesthetic and political powers.
