Chip War

The Fight for the World's Most Critical Technology

Chris Miller

Discover the new oil of the modern world - microchip technology. In "Chip War," economic historian Chris Miller explores the battle for control over this critical resource between the United States and China. With virtually everything running on chips, from missiles to microwaves, the stakes are high for military, economic, and geopolitical power. China's chip-building ambitions and military modernization threaten America's global dominance and economic prosperity. Miller explains how the semiconductor became so vital to modern life and how America became #1 in chip design and manufacturing. But with key components slipping out of America's grasp, the world faces not only a chip shortage but a new Cold War. Discover the fascinating story of the battle for chips and how it impacts our current state of technology, politics, and economics.
