New Power: How Power Works in Our Hyperconnected World—and How to Make It Work for You by Jeremy HeimansNOW A NATIONAL BESTSELLER
The definitive guide to spreading ideas, building movements, and leaping ahead in our chaotic, connected age. Get the book New York Times columnist David Brooks calls the best window I’ve seen into this new world.
Why do some leap ahead while others fall behind in our chaotic, connected age? In New Power, Jeremy Heimans and Henry Timms confront the biggest stories of our time--the rise of mega-platforms like Facebook and Uber; the out-of-nowhere victories of Obama and Trump; the unexpected emergence of movements like #MeToo--and reveal whats really behind them: the rise of new power.
For most of human history, the rules of power were clear: power was something to be seized and then jealously guarded. This old power was out of reach for the vast majority of people. But our ubiquitous connectivity makes possible a different kind of power. New power is made by many. It is open, participatory, and peer-driven. It works like a current, not a currency--and it is most forceful when it surges. The battle between old and new power is determining who governs us, how we work, and even how we think and feel.
New Power shines fresh light on the cultural phenomena of our day, from #BlackLivesMatter to the Ice Bucket Challenge to Airbnb, uncovering the new power forces that made them huge. Drawing on examples from business, activism, and pop culture, as well as the study of organizations like Lego, NASA, Reddit, and TED, Heimans and Timms explain how to build new power and channel it successfully. They also explore the dark side of these forces: the way ISIS has co-opted new power to monstrous ends, and the rise of the alt-rights intensity machine.
In an era increasingly shaped by new power, this groundbreaking book offers us a new way to understand the world--and our role in it.
What is New Power?
Biden Jr. The rising furor has heightened interest in how the impeachment process works. Only two presidents have been impeached — Andrew Johnson in and Bill Clinton in — and both were ultimately acquitted and completed their terms in office. Richard M. Nixon resigned in to avoid being impeached. Essentially, it means an abuse of power by a high-level public official. This does not necessarily have to be a violation of an ordinary criminal statute.
