"According to Guins, these new "control technologies" are designed to embody an ethos of neoliberal governance - through the very media that have been previously presumed to warrant management, legislation, and policing. Repositioned within a discourse of empowerment, security, and choice, the action of regulation, he reveals, has been relocated into the hands of users."--BOOK JACKET.
