Product description

Review

"Forget networking your toaster to your refrigerator--in Pax Technica, Howard brilliantly outlines the coming consequences of the Internet of Things, including altered norms of international governance. This is the most important work yet written on the subject, and the first to extend the logic of networked infrastructure to the global political stage."--Clay Shirky, author of Here Comes Everybody-- (01/06/2015)

"Connected devices raise a variety of social, economic, and political concerns. In this timely book, Howard analyzes how sensors, geolocation devices, and wearable technologies will broaden and threaten people's lives. It is a superb analysis of what he calls 'pax technica'."--Darrell West, Brookings Institution-- (11/25/2014)

"Pax Technica is a groundbreaking assessment of the next great stage of the digital revolution, the one that makes all previous stages look like child's play. The 'internet of things' is upon us, and Howard provides an eye-opening account of its immense promise and perils."--Robert W. McChesney, author of Digital Disconnect: How Capitalism is Turning the Internet Against Democracy-- (12/02/2014)

"We can't say we haven't been warned--or encouraged. Phil Howard makes a big argument about the fundamental shift in power that will occur once the Internet of Things takes hold and connected devices become central to our lives. He also provides a wise blueprint for making these changes work for the common good. Take heed."--Lee Rainie, Director of Internet, Science, and Technology research at the Pew Research Center-- (12/12/2014)

"Pax Technica is an essential guidebook for the often unsettling implications of Big Data and the Internet of Things. Howard crafts a persuasive plea for active civic engagement to help chart us towards a more equitable digital future."--Ron Deibert, author of Black Code: Surveillance, Privacy, and the Dark Side of the Internet-- (01/02/2015)

"To understand the true significance of the Internet of Things, I only need to turn to Philip Howard's new masterpiece: Bold, comprehensive, full of intriguing insights and eminently readable!"--Viktor Mayer-Schönberger, co-author of Big Data--Viktor Mayer-Schonberger (12/30/2014)

"Ambitious and provocative, Pax Technica addresses the implications of digital media, big data, and related phenomena for democracy and public life. Pundits, policymakers, and those curious about the changing landscape of media, politics, and global affairs should take note."--Seth Lewis, University of Minnesota-- (09/10/2014)

"Pax Technica is a brilliant work of responsible optimism about how big data, AI and the Internet of Things may improve the world. Philip Howard acknowledges the potential downsides of our data-drenched society, but makes a compelling case for why we may live better, and govern ourselves sensibly, in the era of Pax Technica. The book makes a substantial contribution to the debate over how we coexist with technology--and is as a thoughtful antidote to the digital doomsayers."--Kenneth Cukier, co-author of Big Data: A Revolution That Will Transform How We Live, Work, and Think-- (01/06/2015)

"In Pax Technica, Phillip Howard envisions a world in which the ubiquity of Internet connectivity and the proliferation of Internet-aware devices fundamentally change the ways governments and other power structures interact with people. Whether this new order comes to full fruition, Howard's roadmap of the potential opportunities and consequences is extremely useful as we move into unchartered technical and political waters."--Jonathan Zittrain, George Bemis Professor of Law and Professor of Computer Science, Harvard University-- (01/06/2015)

"Building on his previous research about digital technology and democratization, Philip Howard takes a sweeping and ambitious look at how government, political structures and international relations will be transformed by technological change. Optimistic that a Pax Technica will bring global stability, Howard calls for more transparency, standards for data sharing and reminds us of the need for an internet that is truly global. Thought provoking, opinionated, and upbeat, Howard's book is an interesting addition to the debate about the effects that new technology should and could have on our society."--Anya Schiffrin, author of Global Muckraking-- (01/08/2015)
