Billions of people are coming online in the next decade. Their physical lives, human rights, and civic relationships will be forever altered. Technology is reshaping human society in ways we never imagined, and the story for the future is one of promise and innovation.

In the paperback release of the New York Times bestseller The New Digital Age: Transforming Nations, Business and Our Lives, Eric Schmidt, the Executive Chairman and former CEO of Google, and Jared Cohen, director of Google Ideas, tackle some of the most interesting questions about our future: how will technology change privacy and security, war and intervention, diplomacy, revolution and terrorism? How will technology improve our lives? What new disruptions can we expect?

On the heels of months of news stories about online privacy and security, The New Digital Age is a timely and forward-thinking account of where our world is headed and what this means for people, states and businesses.

In conversation with Alec Ross, one of America’s leading experts on innovation, a Senior Fellow at Columbia University’s School of International & Public Affairs, and former Senior Advisor for Innovation to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
