A groundbreaking examination of the new centres of power and control in the twenty-first century
A new force is chipping away at the old, familiar places where power used to sit- jolting economies, transforming political parties, swallowing newspapers, eclipsing experts, dismantling corporations. But as it rips down traditional seats of power, it is at the same time redistributing that power to new, mysterious places, in new, mysterious ways.
In The Death of the Gods, Carl Miller takes us on a journey to expose the new centres of power and control today, and the forces shaping our world. Moving through several realms - work, politics, business, culture, media and crime - The Death of the Gods draws on pioneering research and analysis to describe how power is created, applied and sustained in the twenty-first century, and attempts to define what power really means today.
A new world order has emerged. Astounding new opportunities - as broadcaster, politician, entrepreneur or activist - are at our fingertips. But how available is power today? Do we have more power as individuals, or are we more controlled than ever before? Carl Miller is a Visiting Research Fellow at the Policy Institute, King's College London, and the co-founder and Research Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media (CASM) at Demos, the first think tank and technology laboratory dedicated to studying the digital world. He studied History at the University of Cambridge, and holds the top MA distinction in War Studies from King's College, London. A groundbreaking examination of the new centres of power and control in the twenty-first century
