Pressestimmen “Antisocial is . . . Marantz’s searching attempt to understand people he describes as truly deplorable without letting his moral compass get wrecked. . . . [Antisocial] is trenchant and intelligent; wry but not glib; humane but never indulgent.'  —Jennifer Szalai The New York Times“Imagine a world bereft of gates and uncrossable lines with no discernable rules. That’s the Hadean landscape that has been painted expertly in dark hues by Andrew Marantz in his book Antisocial.” —Kara Swisher The New York Times Book Review“By turns amusing and alarming. . . . Like an old Hunter S. Thompson report from the campaign trail Antisocial is an entertaining read about a distressing subject.”  —San Francisco Chronicle   “Antisocial is an engrossing work of literary journalism. . . . A genuine first of its kind: ambitious attuned to the novel features of social media and written with enough detail and perspective to survey the subtle grain of a multifaceted movement. . . . Marantz is a master of this beat and he excels at unwinding the subtle ironies personal tics and moments of vulnerability that reveal his subjects. . . . Antisocial is an engaging relentlessly detailed and observant study of the characters and personal motivations at play in the far right’s information pipeline.” —The Nation'Devastatingly relevant.'—Vogue“With force and elegance New Yorker staff writer Marantz clearly documents social media’s empowerment of bigotry propaganda and right-wing extremism. Deeply reported.” —The National Book Review   “Antisocial by Andrew Marantz is so humane and lucid and absorbing and good!! Everything in it is a nightmare and I couldn’t put it down.” —Jia Tolentino via Twitter“A searching study of the right-wing gate-crashers who have overwhelmed social media in the Trump era. . . . Marantz’s travels into the camps of those right-wingers prove [Richard] Rorty correct and the author clearly documents their use of social media to advance right-wing causes. . . . Invaluable political reportage in a time of crisis.'—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)“Marantz a staff writer at the New Yorker makes a timely and excellent debut. . . . Marantz doesn’t shy away from asking pointed questions or noting his subjects’ inconsistencies. This insightful and well-crafted book is a must-read account of how quickly the ideas of what’s acceptable public discourse can shift.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)“[A] breathtaking page-turning foray into the clash between Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and online extremists. . . . Marantz’s narrative is like going along for the ride in a foreign landscape bouncing into the unknown on a bumpy road. . . . Marantz has a keen eye for character. . . . His intentions are serious and ultimately Antisocial is an insightful look at two powerful forces shaping American society. . . . Whether you use social media or not Antisocial is an important look at groups that are molding the nation.” —BookPage“Antisocial is at once funny and scary antic and illuminating. It's a must-read for anyone still struggling to understand the last election or hoping to make sense of the next one.” —Elizabeth Kolbert Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Sixth Extinction  “Anyone who wants to know how Silicon Valley's dream turned into democracy's nightmare should read Antisocial Andrew Marantz's fascinating firsthand exploration of the trolls and nihilists who have hijacked the internet. This book puts contemporary politics in an alarming new light.”—Jane Mayer author of Dark Money“A riveting exploration of the causes and consequences of our current societal nervous breakdown. Antisocial is absolutely essential reading to understand this moment and it will stick in your brain long after you’ve devoured it.”  —Chris Hayes author of A Colony in a Nation and host of All In with Chris Hayes “We live in an era when current events are driven as much by scrolls of binary code as they are by matters in the physical world. With Antisocial Andrew Marantz has crafted a map of this digital landscape charted how it came to be and pointed to its implications for all of us. This is an important book whose relevance will only grow over time.”  Jelani Cobb Ira A. Lipman Professor of Journalism at Columbia University and author of The Substance of Hope “Antisocial is a close-up portrait of the new species of online shock artists who have taken over the American conversation.  It is the most detailed and concrete account of how our politics have been changed by social media. This book is essential reading.” —Jaron Lanier interdisciplinary scientist at Microsoft Research and author of You Are Not a Gadget   “Marantz has produced an essential work of reporting—one that illuminates not only how our information landscape emerged but also how it has become so corrupted and dangerous. If you want to comprehend the world in which we live Antisocial is a book you must read.” —David Grann author of Killers of the Flower Moon   “Nowhere is the propagation of racist ideas more apparent today than on the social media platforms Silicon Valley created—but failed to govern. In Antisocial Andrew Marantz crafted a complex unsettling portrait of how blind techno-utopianism can lead to disaster. This is necessary reading if we intend to keep the next generation of social networks from becoming yet another American source of oppression.”  —Ibram X. Kendi National Book Award-winning author of Stamped from the Beginning and How to Be an Antiracist“This is a book about how the unthinkable becomes thinkable: how in the Age of Trump the alt-right and outright fascists have come to claim a central place in American discourse. This book scared the hell out of me but every American could benefit from reading it. Andrew Marantz has written a chilling deeply sourced rivetingly told account of how a few fringe figures saw the potential of the internet as a vehicle for mass disinformation and became prophets of the new fascism. Antisocial is political reporting at its finest.” —Suketu Mehta author of This Land Is Our Land Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende Andrew Marantz is a staff writer at The New Yorker where he has worked since 2011.
