Abstract:

Intelligence and security communities have access to an overwhelming amount of information. In this book, Robert Mandel explores how information overload facilitates ambiguity, deception, and surprise, eroding international trust and cooperation in the Internet Age. A sweeping array of case studies illustrates the role of data shock in shaping global events from the 1990 Iraqi attack on Kuwait to Brexit. Too much information can lead to foreign intelligence failures, security policy incoherence, mass public frustrations, curtailment of democratic freedoms, and even international political anarchy. Global Data Shock address the pressing need for improved management of information and its strategic deployment. -- Back cover.
