Powershift: Knowledge, Wealth, and Violence in the 21st Century

Front Cover

While headlines today focus on the tremendous shifts of power at the global level, the author says that equally significant, but largly unnoticed, shifts of power are taking place in the intimate, everyday world we inhabit -- the world of supermarkets and hospitals, banks and business offices, television and telephones. Power shifts are transforming finance, politics, and the media, together creating a now radically different society. The very nature of power is changing.
