Book Description

The ultimate book on the worldwide movement of hackers, pranksters, and activists collectively known as Anonymous.

Propelled by years of chats and encounters with a multitude of hackers, including imprisoned activist Jeremy Hammond and the double agent who helped put him away, this book is filled with insights into the meaning of digital activism and little understood facets of culture in the Internet age, including the history of "trolling", the ethics and metaphysics of hacking, and the origins and manifold meanings of "the lulz".

Winner of the 2015 American Anthropological Association's Diana Forsythe Prize awarded by the Society for the Anthropology of Work (SAW) and from the Committee on the Anthropology of Science, Technology and Computing.
