Reviews

'A fascinating, comprehensive, and persuasive account of Marxism's continued relevance for understanding - and changing - our contemporary digital world' -- Nick Srnicek, author of 'Platform Capitalism'
'Christian Fuchs is the world's foremost Marxist analyst of contemporary capitalist media. With this important book, he demonstrates not just why Marx remains vital to understanding the world; he puts Marx to use in helping us figure out how to change it' -- Jodi Dean, author of 'The Communist Horizon'
'A 'creative renewal' of Marx, emphasising his relevance for digital capitalism. The concepts Fuchs revisits are essential to a critical media and communication theory for the twenty-first century. A must reread!' -- Janet Wasko, President of the International Association for Media and Communication Research
'Christian Fuchs is among the most important critical theorists of communication writing today, Rereading Marx in the Age of Digital Capitalism one of his most appealing books. Its fusion of deep Marxist scholarship with highly contemporary case studies, ranging from digital automation to new thinking about anti-capitalist struggle, is not to be missed' -- Nick Dyer-Witheford, author of 'Cyber-Proletariat: Global Labour in the Digital Vortex'
'Societies change with the pace of developments in technology and revolutionary practices. The contradictions that capital presently experiences arise with increasing frequency in the structures of communication and technology. Fuchs rereads Marx in the present, in that tangle of explosive contradictions, indicating with clarity and force the necessary path of theoretical militancy today' -- Antonio Negri, author of 'Political Descartes: Reason, Ideology and the Bourgeois Project'
