About the Book

Ian Lucas was a key player in the world-leading Parliamentary investigation which revealed the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the dark role of Facebook and a political cover up leading to 10 Downing Street. Here, he sets out the scale of the threat to democracy posed by the unbridled power of social media and how, unknown to most of us, it has harvested and exploited our most private moments and thoughts and fractured our communities as never before – all to make money and seize power.

“Digital Gangsters” is the inside story of the seismic impact of this new, online politics – how it has enflamed populism, division and violence and what we must do urgently to rebuild trust in the system which governs us all.
