The Square and the Tower: Networks and Power, from the Freemasons to Facebook

᠑ Importance of textThe Square and the Tower: Networks and Power, from the Freemasons to Facebook ᠭ PDF Author Elliot Hill ᢚ A brilliant recasting of the turning points in world history, including the one we re living through, as a collision between old power hierarchies and new social networks Most history is hierarchical it s about emperors, presidents, prime ministers, and field marshals It s about states, armies, and corporations It s about orders from on high Even history from below is often about trade unions and workers parties But what if that s simply because hierarchical institutions create the archives that historians rely on What if we are missing the informal, less well documented social networks that are the true sources of power and drivers of change The 21st century has been hailed as the Age of Networks However, in The Square and the Tower, Niall Ferguson argues that networks have always been with us, from the structure of the brain to the food chain, from the family tree to freemasonry Throughout history, hierarchies housed in high towers have claimed to rule, but often real power has resided in the networks in the town square below For it is networks that tend to innovate And it is through networks that revolutionary ideas can contagiously spread Just because conspiracy theorists like to fantasize about such networks doesn t mean they are not real From the cults of ancient Rome to the dynasties of the Renaissance, from the founding fathers to Facebook, The Square and the Tower tells the story of the rise, fall, and rise of networks, and shows how network theory concepts such as clustering, degrees of separation, weak ties, contagions, and phase transitions can transform our understanding of both the past and the present Just as The Ascent of Money put Wall Street into historical perspective, so The Square and the Tower does the same for Silicon Valley And it offers a bold prediction about which hierarchies will withstand this latest wave of network disruption and which will be toppled Square Credit Card Processing Accept Credit Square helps millions of sellers run their business from secure credit card processing to
