Democracy For Sale: Dark Money and Dirty Politics

Save event

'Democracy For Sale: Dark Money and Dirty Politics' is the story of how money, vested interests and digital skulduggery are eroding trust in democracy. 

Antiquated electoral laws are broken with impunity, secretive lobbying is bending our politics out of shape and Silicon Valley tech giants collude in selling out democracy. Politicians lie gleefully, making wild claims that can be shared instantly with millions on social media. Investigative journalist Peter Geoghegan guides us through the shadowy world of dark money and digital disinformation.

'This should be the most discussed political book of the year. The subject could not be more urgent.' (Observer)

Join Global Book Club Plymouth to discuss this powerful account of democracy under threat. This online meeting is open to all - please email s.kay@blueyonder.co.uk for joining instructions.

An initiative of Devon Development Education, Global Book Club Plymouth is supported by the University of Plymouth.
