THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER'Silicon Valley needed a history lesson and Ferguson has provided it' Eric SchmidtMost history is about the people at the top of the towers of power.

Niall Ferguson, the international bestselling author of Empire, The Ascent of Money and Civilization, brilliantly recasts past and present as an unending contest between hierarchies and networks.
