"The way we are governed is changing. Government has less and less power to influence how we live our lives, while the private sector has more power than ever to control what we do and what we think. Yet the business pages of the newspapers still come as a supplement, while the activites of governments dominate the front pages and the headlines. To understand the new world in which we are living, we need to learn to challenge long held assumptions about the nature of power in society; The Silent Takeover will be an essential guide to that new understanding as we enter the 21st century- a time in which we can no longer rely on politicians of whatever stripe to meet our needs; a time in which business, rather than political parties, offers the way forward; a time in which we can make more of an impact through our pockets than we have ever done through the ballot box. Based not only on Noreena Hertz's experience as a consultant to businesses and governments, but also on dozens of research interviews conducted especially for this book, with a range of figures from Rupert Murdoch to Evgeny Primakov, The Silent Takeover will be an agenda setting book."
