One of the UK’s most respected journalists, Matthew d’Ancona (Sunday Telegraph, Spectator, Evening Standard, Guardian) welcomes us to the Post-Truth era.
From Trump to Putin to Brexit, we have entered a new period where clandestine technologies exploit big data and social media, manipulating, polarising and entrenching opinion. A climate has arisen where trust has evaporated, conspiracy theories thrive, the authority of the media has wilted and emotions matter more than facts. The very foundations of democracy are under threat.
In his timely new book, d’Ancona investigates how we got here, why quiet resignation is not an option and how we can and must fight back!
