This book provides a study of governmental digitalization, an increasingly important area of policymaking within advanced capitalist states.

Advancing a cultural political economic approach, Schou and Hjelholt argue that digitalization is far

Such inequalities have been described in multiple traditions of social thought and theoretical approaches. To move forward to a greater understanding of the nuanced dynamics of digital inequality, we need the theoretical lenses to interpret the meaning of what has been observed as digital inequality.
