Book Review: Capital, State, Empire: The New American Way of Digital Warfare by Scott Timcke

Marc Kosciejew reviews Capital, State, Empire: The New American Way of Digital Warfare by Scott Timcke, published by University of Westminster Press 2017.

“Timcke specifically concentrates on how American imperialism – comprised by a powerful American-centric capitalist system coupled with an increasingly militarised security apparatus – is facilitated and entrenched by these digital technologies through coercive digital practices that create structural injustices, stratifications, and inequalities. He further illuminates how these digital technologies have been co-opted, hi-jacked, usurped, and otherwise used by the (American) security apparatus to help enforce the capital system’s control over society whilst “enabling the militarization in all aspects of social life, even areas that were once previously beyond the reach of state violence”.”
