His debut book, The Death of the Gods: The New Global Power Grab (published by Penguin, Random House) won the 2019 Transmission Prize. In it, he threw himself into the weirdest and wildest parts of the digital age. He came face-to-face with hikikomori – ‘the departed’ – in South Korea who only live online, lived in a political-technology commune, had a knife held to his throat and become involved in the struggle for control of an online assassination market, all to help us understand how the digital revolution is causing traditional power structures to crumble and evolve, and how this process is changing all of our lives in ways we may not have noticed.
Additionally, Carl has written for Wired, New Scientist, The Sunday Times, The Telegraph and the Guardian. He is also the author of over a dozen major reports on the effect of the digital world on society and politics and how it can be studied. This includes the influence of the internet on radicalisation, policing and counter-terrorism, hate crime and social media, digital democracy, and changing identities and beliefs in the digital world.
