The Death of the Gods by Carl Miller

The Death of the Gods: The New Global Power Grab by Carl Miller
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3.9MB
Overview: A groundbreaking examination of the new centres of power and control in the twenty-first century.

The old gods are dying. Giant corporations collapse overnight. Newspapers are being swallowed. Stock prices plummet with a tweet. Governments are losing control. The old familiarities are tumbling down and a strange new social order is rising in their place. More crime now happens online than offline. Facebook has grown bigger than any state, bots battle elections, technologists have reinvented democracy and information wars are breaking out around us. New mines produce crypto-currencies, coders write policy, and algorithms shape our lives in more ways than we can imagine. What is going on?

For centuries, writers and thinkers have used power as a prism through which to view and understand the world at moments of seismic change. The Death of the Gods is an exploration of power in the digital age, and a journey in search of the new centres of control today. From a cyber-crime raid in suburbia to the engine rooms of Silicon Valley, and from the digital soldiers of Berkshire to the hackers of Las Vegas, pioneering technology researcher Carl Miller traces how power – the most important currency of all – is being transformed, fought over, won and lost. As power escapes from its old bonds, he shows us where it has gone, the shape it now takes and how it touches each of our lives.

The Briefing by Sean Spicer (.AZW3)

The Briefing: Politics, the Press, and the President by Sean Spicer
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 1.8MB
Overview: No job is more of a pressure cooker than being a White House press secretary…especially in this White House.

For more than two decades, Sean Spicer had been a respected political insider, working as a campaign and communications strategist. But in December 2016, he got the call of a lifetime. President-elect Donald J. Trump had chosen him to be the White House press secretary. And life hasn’t been the same since. When he accepted the job, Spicer was far from a household name. But then he walked into the bright lights of the briefing room, and the cameras started rolling. His every word was scrutinized. Every movement was parodied. Every detail became a meme. And that’s just the public side. Behind the scenes, things were almost as difficult in an administration plagued by leaks that frustrated and angered both Spicer and the president. Not to mention the extraordinary pressures on Spicer’s family and his faith. Now, in his provocative and enlightening political memoir, The Briefing, Spicer reveals the truth behind some of the biggest news stories of our time, and he offers a glimpse into what it’s like to stand at the press secretary’s podium-and how he got there. The Briefing is the first insider account written by someone who worked on the Trump campaign, with the Trump transition team, and in the Trump White House-and has seen Donald Trump rallying voters, building an administration, and making crucial policy decisions. Spicer’s riveting and personal account makes The Briefing the must-read political memoir of the year.

The BDS War Against Israel by Jed Babbin+

The BDS War Against Israel: The Orwellian Campaign to Destroy Israel Through the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement by Jed Babbin & Herbert London
Requirements: .ePUB, .PDF, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 1.2 Mb
Overview: From the day of its founding, Israel has been under attack-with tanks, rockets, and horrific terrorism against civilians. But despite it all, the Jewish State remained unbowed, and its democracy has become stronger as its adversaries have sunk deeper into poverty, political chaos, and totalitarian depravity.
In need of new tactics, Israel’s foes have opened up a new front: A well-funded, global campaign to demonize Israel as a racist, “Apartheid” state. The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has captured the attentions of idealistic youth and dedicated radicals around the world, either unaware or uncaring that they are being cynically manipulated by Islamicists and their sympathizers in the West.
An alliance of some of the worst state and non-state actors on the world stage, BDS represents an existential threat to the future of Israel-one that cannot be ignored by her or her allies.
This is the first book that exposes the methods, motivations, underlying ideology, and sources of funding for the BDS movement. It is an indispensable guide to understanding how to defeat BDS in the media, on campus, and in public opinion.
