However, this is not simply a critique of the myriad ways in which academics’ “performance” is now constantly audited and monitored in a way that limits their freedom to perform their proper function, but also a muchneeded call to arms.’ – Julian Petley, Brunel University London, UK Nov 2022 c 416 pp Hardback 978 1 78897 590 2 c £155.00 / c $225.00 eBook • Elgaronline Regulating Social Network Sites Data Protection, Copyright and Power Asma Vranaki, University of Bristol, UK ‘Asma Vranaki dives into power relationships online, in particular social networks.
