"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

"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
