This book by the always fascinating Niall Ferguson though his main product for sale is always himself analyzes capsule summaries of episodes from history in order to negatively contrast spontaneous networked action the suare with hierarchical control the tower Two theses flow from this one stated early on the other only explicitly presented at the end The first is that our networked age is not uniue in fact it is the second such age and lessons are to be gained from this including that from a historical perspective networks are too often ignored in favor of focus on hierarchies The second is that networks with actual power are mostly anarchistic poisonThere is apparently a modern academic discipline called network theory in which statisticians and sociologists spend their days creating complex graphs to illustrate connections among everything from newts to nuclear power using math to uantify the contents of those graphs Ne

free download The Suare and the Tower Networks Hierarchies and the Struggle for Global Power Niall Ferguson ¸ 0 read review The Suare and the Tower Networks Hierarchies and the Struggle for Global Power ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ce from the founding fathers to Facebook The Suare and the Tower tells the story of the rise fall and rise of networks and shows how network theory concepts such as clustering degrees of separation weak ties contagions and phase transitions can transform our understanding of both the past and the presentJust as The Ascent of Money put Wall Street into historical perspective so The Suare and the Tower does the same for Silicon Valley And it offers a bold prediction about which hierarchies will withstand this latest wave of network disruption and which will be topple. I was approved for a copy for review via NetGalleySadly this was a DNF for me at 20% I am personally not the biggest fan of non fiction works and found some of the terminology difficult to understand I did like the use of diagrams though as this made the chapters look visual Sadly I lost interest and will not be finishing

Niall Ferguson is the author of among other works a superb history of the British Empire I came to this book with high expectations and found it a huge disappointmentIts central thesis is meant to be that networks of people who may be in themselves regarded as unimportant have played key roles in history But much of the book is actually narrative history that focuses largely on people who have long been regarded as prominent individuals rather belying the thesis A much too long introductory section about a tenth of the book explores recent understandings of network theory and uotes opinions and statements of network theorists as if they are facts Niall Ferguson contrasts hierarchies where people obey orders from above with networks which cross hierarchical and organisational boundaries The importance of networks has been a platitude of organisational theory for decadesFerguson substantially exaggerates the novelty of historians thinking abou
