            Cosmopolitan elites across the globe are ignoring the will of the people--pushing disgruntled voters into the arms of national-populist parties and politicians. The election of Donald Trump in America and the referendum on European Union membership in the United Kingdom, otherwis...e known as Brexit, sent shockwaves throughout the world. Cosmopolitan elites across the globe never saw this populist uprising coming and still do not understand it. People across the globe have been increasingly voting for national-populist politicians over the last twenty years. The current nationalist-populist revolt started long before Donald Trump came down his golden escalator, and even before Prime Minister David Cameron agreed to hold a referendum vote on the EU. It wasn't isolated to rundown towns in Northern England or the Midwest, and it wasn't solely because of demographic changes, ignorance, intolerance, or a whitelash. It was occurring because the elites chose to ignore voters' concerns when it came to globalism and neoliberalism. Issues like mass immigration, war, economic inequality, and national sovereignty were sacrosanct to neoliberals, and ultimately, their unwillingness to concede on these issues built discontent among millions of people.

            The Secret Life of Kim Dotcom: Spies, Lies and the War for the Internet (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Fisher, David

            "From a lonely boy's bedroom in Germany to the penthouses of Hong Kong, from Wellington's Beehive to Washington's corridors of power, from the sedate suburb of Coatesville to the motor racing tracks of Europe, this is the untold story of the charismatic internet tycoon who has dr...iven governments to distraction while winning the affection of internet users worldwide and a large number of the New Zealand public. It recounts not only the high profile political and legal battles but also the behind the scenes domestic life of a man who has more wealth than he can spend in New Zealand and who once escaped to Europe for winter - and took his cars and furniture with him. Written by David Fisher, who has covered the story from the start for the New Zealand Herald , and who won the 2013 Reporter of the Year award in part for his coverage of the story, the book is not an authorised biography but has been written with the full co-operation of Kim Dotcom, who granted the author hours of exclusive interviews. The book also reveals: why Hollywood is obsessed with Dotcom; why he and wife Mona decided to settle in New Zealand; the full story of the dawn raid; what happened to Dotcom in jail; the truth about John Banks and Dotcom; and where The Hobbit comes into it"--Back cover.
