The paperback of Gordon Corera’s Intercept: The Secret History of Computers and Spies is out today, and it’s not just a new preface, touching on more recent events since the hardback came out last year, that has been included. In the spirit of the Second World War, where Bletchley Park used crossword puzzles to recruit the best code-breakers, we’ve teamed up with a puzzle setter named Serpent to bring you an exclusive puzzle to test your code-breaking mettle! You’ll find it in the back of the book, but we’re also featuring it here. No job…

Brexit Neglects the Real Benefit of Devolution: Aggregation

Author post, Non Fiction

- May 31st, 2016

Connectography, Parag Khanna

Parag Khanna is a senior fellow at the Lee Kuan Yew School, and holds a PhD from the London School of Economics (LSE). His new book is Connectography: Mapping the Global Network Revolution (Orion Books).

The most powerful political force of our age is devolution. Since World War II, the number of independent states has nearly quadrupled from 50 to nearly 200. European empires, the Soviet Union, and the former Yugoslavia all split into dozens of independent states. From East Timor to South Sudan–not to mention Kurdistan and Palestine–the jackhammer of devolution continues its assault on sovereign unity. Not only is devolution a more universal aspiration than democracy, but as Scotland and Catalunya aptly demonstrate, democracy serves only to fuel devolution: When given the choice, cities and provinces are gravitating towards more autonomy and local self-rule.
