            Antisocial Media: How Facebook Disconnects Us and Undermines Democracy (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            If you wanted to build a machine that would distribute propaganda to millions of people, distract them from important issues, energize hatred and bigotry, erode social trust, undermine respectable journalism, foster doubts about science, and engage in massive surveillance all at ...once, you would make something a lot like Facebook. Of course, none of that was part of the plan. In this fully updated paperback edition of Antisocial Media, Siva Vaidhyanathan explains how Facebook devolved from an innocent social site hacked together by Harvard students into a force that, while it may make personal life just a little more pleasurable, makes democracy a lot more challenging. It's an account of the hubris of good intentions, a missionary spirit, and an ideology that sees computer code as the universal solvent for all human problems. And it's an indictment of how social media has fostered the deterioration of democratic culture around the world, from facilitating Russian meddling in support of Trump's election to the exploitation of the platform by murderous authoritarians in Burma and the Philippines. Both authoritative and trenchant, Antisocial Media shows how Facebook's mission went so wrong.

            There's a War Going On But No One Can See It (Hardback)

            The runaway Dutch bestseller 'In the old days, anyone wanting to understand the world read the Bible. Anyone wanting to understand the world today should read this book.' Arjan Lubach 'This is even better than John le Carre, because it's true.' Matthijs van Nieuwkerk Summer 2017:... computer screens go blank in 150 countries. The NHS is so affected that hospitals can only take in patients for the casualty department. Ambulances are grounded. MRI scanners and blood refrigeration systems stop functioning. Computer screens turn on spontaneously and the words Oops, your important files are encrypted appear. Employees who desperately pull the plugs on their computers are too late. Restarting is pointless; the computers are locked. And now the attackers ask each victim to pay them 300 dollars. This is hijack software. Those who transfer the money get nothing in return. A month later, an unknown virus strike shuts down systems in France, India, Britain, Holland, Poland and Germany, before spreading to 60 further countries. Based on the cases he investigated over a period of six years, Huib Modderkolk takes the reader on a tour of the corridors and back doors of the globalised digital world. He reconstructs British-American espionage operations and reveals how the power relationships between countries enable intelligence services to share and withhold data from each other. Looking at key players including Edward Snowden, Russian hackers Cozy Bear and Evgeniy Bogachev, 'the Pablo Escobar of the digital era', Modderkolk opens our eyes to the dark underbelly of the internet with the narrative drive of a thriller.
