Chip War: The Fight for the World's Most Critical Technology (Scribner)
Friday, 14 October 2022

This book looks at how America designed and built the fastest chips and maintained its lead as the #1 superpower. Now, America's edge is slipping, undermined by competitors in Taiwan, Korea, Europe, and, above all, China. Today, as Chris Miller reveals, China, which spends more money each year importing chips than it spends importing oil, is pouring billions into a chip-building initiative to catch up to the US. At stake is America's military superiority and economic prosperity.

The book explains how the semiconductor came to play a critical role in modern life and how the U.S. become dominant in chip design and manufacturing and applied this technology to military systems. Chip War shows that, to make sense of the current state of politics, economics, and technology, we must first understand the vital role played by chips.
