I hope some will be interested in my new book just out: Information
Politics: Liberation and Exploitation in the Digital Society, with
Pluto. The blurb and details on how to request information or review
copies is below. It's part of a new book series called Digital
Barricades edited by myself, Jodi Dean and Joss hands will also have a
book from Nick Dyer-Witheford Cyber-Proletariat in May and a full
series launch then.

Cheers Tim

Information Politics: Liberation and Exploitation in the Digital
Society, http://www.plutobooks.com/display.asp?K=9780745333663
------------------------------------------------------------

Conflict over information has become a central part of twenty-first
century politics and culture. The sites of struggle are numerous, the
actors beyond count. Currents of liberation and exploitation course
through the debates about Edward Snowden and surveillance, Anonymous,
search engines and social media.

In Information Politics, Tim Jordan identifies all these issues in
relation to a general understanding of the nature of an information
politics that emerged with the rise of mass digital cultures and the
internet. He also locates it within a field of power and rebellion
that is populated by many interwoven social and political conflicts
including gender, class and ecology.

The exploitations both facilitated by, and contested through,
increases in information flows; the embedding of information
technologies in daily life, and the intersection of network and
control protocols are all examined in Information Politics. Anyone
hoping to get to grips with the rapidly changing terrain of digital
culture and conflict should start here.
