THE EXPLOIT: A Theory of Networks
Alexander R. Galloway and Eugene Thacker

Electronic Mediations Series, volume 21

Alexander R. Galloway and Eugene Thacker challenge the widespread assumptio=
n
that networks are inherently egalitarian. Instead, they contend that there
exist new modes of control entirely native to networks, modes that are at
once highly centralized and dispersed, corporate and subversive. In this
provocative book, they argue that a whole new topology must be invented to
resist and reshape the network form.

"The Exploit is that rare thing: a book with a clear grasp of how networks
operate that also understands the political implications of this emerging
form of power. It cuts through the nonsense about how =8Cfree=B9 and
=8Cdemocratic=B9 networks supposedly are, and it offers a rich analysis of how
network protocols create a new kind of control. Essential reading for all
theorists, artists, activists, techheads, and hackers of the Net." =8BMcKenzi=

Wark, author of A Hacker Manifesto
