Abstrakt

It is not customary that books reviewed in an academic STS journal
have been translated into 17 languages only one year after publication.
Shoshana Zuboff’s The Age of Surveillance Capitalism. The Fight for a
Human Future at the New Frontier of Power, published in 2019 by Profile
Books, is not a customary book. Zuboff’s story is both personal –
each chapter begins with an excerpt of W.H. Auden’s poetry – and draws
on her work as a scholar of social psychology, but the book is not a scientific
publication. For that reason, we approach the book as a quasischolarly
work and as an object-phenomenon that exists within the
broader field of contemporary computing and those concerning science,
technology and society. This makes it worth reading for STS scholars for
reasons we will elaborate upon shortly.
