Product Details


“[Ferguson’s] typically bold rethinking of historical currents, painted on the broadest canvas, offers many stimulating insights on the tense interplay between order, oppression, freedom, and anarchy.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Ferguson has written a provocative and intellectually challenging work that should promote consideration and debate among academics and laypersons.”—Booklist

“Renowned economic historian Ferguson draws on insights from network theory to examine disruptions across time. . . . Refreshingly evenhanded. . . . Ferguson offers a novel way of examining data . . . highly intriguing.”—Kirkus

“Niall Ferguson’s The Square and the Tower brilliantly illuminates the great power struggle between networks and hierarchies that is raging around the world today. As a software engineer steeped in the theory and practice of networks, I was deeply impressed by this book’s insights. Silicon Valley needed a history lesson and Ferguson has provided it.” –Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Alphabet, the parent company of Google
