The Digital Age
18th December 2019
It has never been more important to understand the challenges posed by our increasingly digital existences.

This bookshelf explores how the fusion of politics, data harvesting and digital advertising will define and shape our future and whether we still have the power to decide what kind of world we want to live in.
