Product Details


“If you want to understand how the Far Right is using social media to divide our country, deny science, disseminate hate, and destroy civil liberties, Peter Daou’s book is a must-read. No one will agree with everything in it, or all of his conclusions – but the power of the evidence he musters and the direct, straightforward way he makes his cases are effective and intriguing. Whether you are an ‘innocent bystander’ or ‘in the trenches’ of today’s Digital Civil War, you will learn something new and something interesting by reading this book.” —Ron Klain, former chief of staff under vice presidents Joe Biden and Al Gore

“Beautifully written and absolutely frightening. Peter Daou masterfully explores how the no-holds-barred battles on social media, which have framed the reality for millions of people, will be crucial in determining if American democracy has the strength to pull itself up from the precipice or plunge into a right-wing abyss.”—Carol Anderson, author of White RageThe Unspoken Truth of our Racial Divide  

“Chilling. Having experienced many years in different combat zones and having seen physical destruction, I can say that the intellectual, emotional, and psychological devastation occurring in this digital civil war poses an exponentially greater threat to our existence. Peter Daou shows how values like compassion, equality, and belief in the ideas found in our Constitution are now somehow being thwarted by pretenders who call themselves ‘real Americans.’ An important book.”—Mark Hertling, former Commanding General of U.S. Army Europe
