Abstract

This is a review of Julie Cohen, 'Between Truth and Power: The Legal Constructions of Informational Capitalism' (Oxford University Press, 2019). Legal norms, ideas and institutions are not, Cohen shows, late to the platform party; they’ve been servicing its hosts and revelers for some time. This review outlines the contribution made by the book, analyses the understanding of power in which it trades, and considers the opportunities for change that it identifies.

Keywords: Digital technology, platform economy, law and political economy
