Dismantlings: Words against Machines in the American Long Seventies

Dismantlings (2019) is a study of literary, political, and philosophical critiques of the utopian claims about technology in the Long Seventies, the decade and a half before 1980. Dismantlings opposes the language of technological idealism with radical thought of the Long Seventies.  The book restores revolutionary language of the radical Long Seventies for reuse in the digital present against emergent technologies of exploitation, subjugation, and death.  Congratulations, Matt!
