As the world becomes better connected and we grow dependent on technology, the risks to our infrastructure are multiplying. Whether it's a hostile state striking the national grid or a freak solar storm, our systems have become so interlinked that if one part goes down the rest topple like dominoes. In this ground-breaking book, former government minister Oliver Letwin looks ten years into the future and imagines the national grid collapsing, robbing us of our electric cars, GPS, and the internet of things. His book outlines how businesses and government should respond to these catastrophic events that seem distant and implausible - until they occur.
