About the Author

Carl Miller co-founded The Centre for the Analysis of Social Media at Demos in 2012 and has been its Research Director ever since. He has researched and written widely on how technology is changing society, including for Wired, New Scientist, the Sunday Times, the Telegraph and the Guardian. He is a Visiting Research Fellow at King's College London.


A timely and incisive book that grapples with some of the most significant issues of our time. There will be countless volumes on "disruption" and "innovation" published this year, but Miller cuts through the noise and examines how the ascendancy of technology is fundamentally shifting economic models and the effect that this is having on society and individuals. -- Greg Williams * Wired *
The best sort of tech book: extensive field work, accessible, and ultimately about people rather than computers. The Death of the Gods uncovers the fascinating and often hidden characters that are changing the world. Essential reading if you want to know why the old rules don't apply any more - and what might come next. -- Jamie Bartlett, author of The People Versus Tech
There are plenty of books on the market exploring the the insidious impact of technology platforms on democracies, but Carl's is one of the most gripping. He takes you on a journey through Silicon Valley's rise to power, during which you meet hackers, cybercriminals, fake news factory owners, activists and psyops agents. It's thrilling and terrifying in equal measure. -- Olivia Solon
A whirlwind ride through huge forces shaping and disrupting the world. Miller encounters new elites and grassroots movements, state actors and companies as big as countries, nerds and visionaries, bad men and some pretty amazing women. Prepare to be terrified, exhilarated and occasionally inspired. -- Catherine Mayer, author and co-founder of the Women's Equality Party
A highly readable and at times disturbing account of how in the digital age power over aspects of our everyday lives has shifted from long established to new and untried sources. Carl Miller deftly guides us through the darker recesses of the modern world to meet some of the new global demi-gods that now influence our lives in ways we need urgently to understand. -- Professor Sir David Omand, former Director of GCHQ
