A critical account of the social and structural issues in the digital world that uniquely combines three Marxian perspectives.
At a time when the practices of technology companies continue to attract fierce criticism, this book asks what it actually means to hold a "monopoly" in the tech world and how it might affect the way in which an organisation operates.
Combining new and traditional Marxian perspectives, the authors offer an in-depth analysis of how these technology giants are produced, financialised, and regulated.
As technology firms continue to shape our political and socio-economic landscape, this book will be an invaluable resource for scholars and students who seek to understand the function of technological monopolies in contemporary capitalism.
