It is often claimed that the internet has subverted the hierarchies that have governed the world for millennia, but in this volume Niall Ferguson argues that informal networks have always been the driving force for innovation. From ancient Roman cults to Renaissance dynasties and the American founding fathers, he demonstrates how personal relationships rather than orders from on high have shaped the world. Slightly off-mint and felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
