PositiveBoston ReviewSusskind’s remarkably comprehensive book explores the challenges new digital technologies create, asking what the power and potential of digital systems means for human liberty, democracy, justice, and politics. Most importantly, he argues that the political ideas we have held for centuries are ill-equipped to respond to the challenges posed by current and future technological innovations. As such, we must upgrade the political theory canon for the tech age ... But Susskind’s intervention is to note that recent events should force us to look in the mirror ... many of the problems tech forces us to confront do not concern the innovations themselves, but how those innovations reflect back to us and perpetuate the injustices of our own human world ... Susskind underappreciates how, in many ways, today’s tech behemoths enjoy portraying themselves as playing an indispensable civic role ... But as Susskind reminds us, \'we have more control over [the future] than we realize.\'
