'Taking their inspiration from Bourdieu's analysis of capital, Ragnedda and Ruiu extend the concept theoretically to the digital. Digital capital is operationalised through the creation of an index that accounts for differences in digital skills and competencies. Digital capital is then related to other forms of capital - economic, social and cultural - showing how digital capital works as a bridging capital allowing those with economic and cultural resources to use the digital to acquire ever greater advantage. This speaks to an important new wave of research on the 'third level of the digital divide' that seeks to measure outcomes. This is a highly cogent and important book both theoretically and empirically that should be of interest to sociologists of class and inequality as well as communication scholars seeking to understand the digital divide.'--John Downey, Professor of Comparative Media Analysis and Head of Communication and Media, Loughborough University; Vice-President, European Communication Research & Education Association
