Great Kirkus Review of Null States

Great review of Null States from Kirkus!

“Older continues to argue, most convincingly, that controlling the flow of information to the government and the public is the most potent power there is and illustrates how seemingly insignificant data points can build up to a larger, threatening picture.

Carefully researched, prescient, thoughtful, and disturbing.”
