"Required reading for anyone who is concerned with the future of democracy."--The Economist "America's leading legal academic gives us a way to address democracy's leading challenge--preserving a public informed enough to govern itself. Drawing on an incredible range of scholarship and experience, this book could not be more timely. Or urgently needed."---Lawrence Lessig, Harvard Law School, "A timely and persuasive argument about the risk that online media polarization poses to deliberative democracy in the United States."---Andrew W. Lang, Law Library Journal "#Republic is a timely reminder that unfettered control over the news we choose to consume is appealing, but when it results in partisan silos and rampant fake news, it can also make a deliberative democracy difficult to achieve."---Chayenne Polimedio, Washington Monthly "Recent events such as the unexpected rise of Donald Trump and the growth of partisan hatred have led many people to start taking the problem of political ignorance and bias more seriously than before. [This] important new book offer[s] insightful diagnoses and potential solutions for these dangers. . . . [It makes] important points and offer[s] valuable insights, particularly when it comes to the role of the internet and social media in our political environment. . . . [It is] essential reading for anyone interested in this pressing subject."---Ilya Somin, Washington Post's Volokh Conspiracy "#Republic . . . describes how social media shapes politics and journalism. So far, it has not received as much attention as Nudge. This is a pity: the ideas in #Republic are arguably more important--and more pressing."---Gilliant Tett, Financial Times Magazine "More praise for#Republic"---Benjamin Knoll, New York Journal of Books "An excellent assessment of how social psychology, technology, and politics are colliding to produce the extreme and polarized discourse that has come to dominate our contemporary political environment. Its accessible prose and clear organization make it a solid pick for political science courses as well as citizens who want to better understand how technology is changing the way we think and talk about politics in today's world."---Alex Dean, Prospect "Ripped straight from the headlines, but informed by hard data, #Republicshould command the attention of American citizens across the political spectrum."---Glenn C. Altschuler, Philadelphia Inquirer "Sunstein argues convincingly that for deliberative democracy to work, citizens must be in a position to consider a range of options."---Angelia R. Wilson, Times Higher Education "I . . . found myself shocked at how relevant Sunstein's account was to my own life and the ways I seek out and encounter information, which is in a way the value of the book--it gets you to reflect on the role of your information habits on your view of the world around you. And if you want to know how important that is, well, you should read Sunstein's book."---Annie Coreno, Publishers Weekly "Listed on the 2017 War on the Rocks Holiday Reading List" "The Internet has surely enhanced our democracy, with greater access to information and fewer barriers to connecting with each other. However, we're seeing the opposite today with more narrow-minded online platforms and communities, as evidenced by the impact of fake news on this past election.#Republicpointedly captures the risks of the ongoing evolution of social media to our democratic ideals."--Tyler Cowen, author ofThe Great Stagnation "With political polarisation on the rise, particularly in the United States, [this book] couldn't come at a more important time."--Stephanie Cutter, former Senior Aide to President Barack Obama and Partner, Precision Strategies "What went wrong with social media and also with democracy? Here's the guy who saw it coming, and yes he does have al
