Global Civil War is an exciting new study by scholar and activist William Robinson that provides a big-picture account of how the coronavirus pandemic and new digital technologies have drastically transformed capitalism and the entire global economy and society. Analyzing the concentration of power and control in the hands of corporate conglomerates, tech giants, megabanks, and the military-industrial complex, the book documents the extent of unprecedented global inequalities as the mass of humanity faces violent dispossession and uncertain survival. Enabled by digital applications, the ruling groups will continue to ratchet up the global police state to contain the global revolt unless mass pressure from below pushes them to change course. The book issues a dire warning against the emergence of a dystopic digitalized dictatorship but also finds great hope and inspiration in the burgeoning social movements of the poor and the dispossessed as humanity descends into global civil war. At once deeply analytical and theoretically sophisticated, it is also eminently accessible to a wider public and is destined to become a companion text to those struggling on the frontlines for global social justice and a more hopeful future.
