Technoliberalism and the End of Participatory Culture in the United States Hardback
by Adam Fish
This new book examines whether television can be used as a tool not just for capitalism, but for democracy.
Throughout television's history, activists have attempted to access it for that very reason.
New technologies-cable, satellite, and the internet-provided brief openings for amateur and activist engagement with television.
This book elaborates on this history by using ethnographic data to build a new iteration of liberalism, technoliberalism, which sees Silicon Valley technology and the free market of Hollywood end the need for a politics of participation.
