In his latest book, Platform Socialism, James Muldoon sets out an alternative vision and concrete proposals for a digital economy that expands our freedom.

The book reframes the technology debate and proposes a host of new ideas from the local to the international for how we can reclaim the emancipatory possibilities of digital platforms.

Drawing on sources from forgotten histories to contemporary prototypes, he proposes an alternative system and charts a roadmap for how we can get there.
