Across the globe, Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft have accumulated power in ways that existing regulatory and intellectual frameworks struggle to comprehend. A consensus is emerging that the power of these new digital monopolies is unprecedented, and that it has important implications for journalism, politics, and society.

It is increasingly clear that democratic societies require new legal and conceptual tools if they are to adequately understand, and if necessary check the economic might of these companies. Equally, that we need to better comprehend the ability of such firms to control personal data and to shape the flow of news, information, and public opinion.

In this volume, Martin Moore and Damian Tambini draw together the world's leading researchers to examine the digital dominance of technologies platforms and look at the evidence behind the rising tide of criticism of the tech giants. In fifteen chapters, the authors examine the economic, political, and social impacts of Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple, and Microsoft, in order to understand the different facets of their power and how it is manifested. Digital Dominance is the first interdisciplinary volume on this topic, contributing to a conversation which is critical to maintaining the health of democracies across the world.

His research focuses on political communication during election and referendum campaigns, and on the civic power of technology platforms. He is the author of The Origins of Modern Spin (Palgrave MacMillan, 2006) and Tech Giants and Civic Power (2016), and publishes frequently on the media and politics. Damian Tambini is Associate Professor at the London School of Economics. He has served as an advisor and expert in numerous policymaking roles for the European Commission, the Council of Europe, the UK Government, and the UK media regulator, Ofcom. He has published numerous articles and books on the topic of communication, policy, and politics, including Codifying Cyberspace (Routledge, 2008).


Digital Dominance is a critically important volume to guide citizens and policymakers as governments around the world wake up to the power of technology giants. Convening diverse and authoritative voices in social science and law, this book presents cutting edge research that is essential to understanding the role of Google, Facebook, Apple, and Amazon in our economy and politics. This work both addresses immediate controversies and promises to be of lasting relevance to those concerned about the effect of technology on society - and how societies might better channel technological development to serve, rather than dominate, humanity. * Frank Pasquale, author of The Black Box Society: The Secret Algorithms that Control Money and Information *
