"A polemic as finely concentrated as a line of pure cocaine" - Los Angeles Review of Books

About the Author

Jonathan Crary is Meyer Schapiro Professor of Modern Art and Theory at Columbia University and is a founding editor of Zone Books. His publications include Techniques of the Observer, Suspensions of Perception and 24/7.


The 24/7 phantasmagoria of digital exchange impresses the commodity deep into the body's tissues, leaving only sleep as a partial respite. Jonathan Crary updates Marcuse's One Dimensional Man with a vigilant critique of the totality of the seemingly eternal present of this pseudo-world.
*McKenzie Wark, author of The Spectacle of Disintegration*

Crary's polemic against the demands of 24/7 capitalism brilliantly illuminates the devastating effects of our changed temporality. Enjoined to constant productivity, we consume ourselves, our world, and our capacity collectively to imagine a common future. This is a crucial commentary on the format and tempo of contemporary life.
*Jodi Dean, author of The Communist Horizon*

Crary updates Leninist understandings of the expansion of capitalism in his phenomenal book 24/7, which is well worth a read for a clear understanding of the role of time in the continued and deepening exploitation of the working class under digital capitalism.
*Marx & Philosophy Review of Books*
