LikeWar tackles the mind-bending questions that arise when war goes online and the online world goes to war. It explores how ISIS copied the Instagram tactics of Taylor Swift, how a former World of Warcraft addict foiled war crimes thousands of miles away, and how China uses a smartphone app to the police the thoughts of 1.4 billion citizens. What can be kept secret in a world of networks? Does social media expose the truth or bury it? And what role do ordinary people now play in international conflicts?
LikeWar has received accolades from generals and admirals, Hollywood executives, and even the co-inventor of the internet. It was named to the New York Times “New and Notable” and proclaimed a Foreign Affairs book of the year. It has received rave reviews from the Washington Post, the Verge, Booklist, Kirkus, and a dozen other publications.
