“The most brilliant British historian of his generation” The TimesWhat if everything we thought we knew about the story was wrongDe Niall Ferguson, the world, author of the Empire’s best-seller, La Montée de l’ Argent et de la Civilisation, is a whole new way of imagining the world.History is more hierarchical: it’s about popes, presidents and prime ministersBut if it’s simply because they’re creating historical archivesWhat can we do if we miss, just as powerful, but less visible networks to abandon them for the theorists of conspiracy, with their dreams of the all-powerful IlluminatiThe twenty-first century has been hailed as the era of networksBut in the Place and Tower of Niall Ferguson says that social networks are nothing newThe printers and preachers who made the Reformation of Freemasonry that led the American Revolution, it was the networkers who disrupted the ancient order of popes and kings.Far from being new, our era is the Second Era of networks, with the computer, in the role of the printing press.Once we understand this, both the past and the future, we begin to look very different indeed.
