520    George Soros -- universally known for his philanthropy, 
       progressive politics, and investment success--has been 
       under sustained attack from the far right, nationalists, 
       and anti-Semites in the United States and around the world
       because of his commitment to open society and liberal 
       democracy. In this brilliant and spirited book, Soros 
       brings together a vital collection of his writings, some 
       never previously published. They deal with a wide range of
       important and timely topics: the dangers that the 
       instruments of control produced by artificial intelligence
       and machine learning pose to open societies; what Soros 
       calls his "political philanthropy"; his founding of the 
       Central European University, one of the world's foremost 
       defender of academic freedom; his philosophy; his boom/
       bust theory of financial markets and its policy 
       implications; and what he calls the tragedy of the 
       European Union. Soros's forceful affirmation of freedom, 
       democracy, the rule of law, human rights, social justice, 
       and social responsibility as a universal idea is a clarion
       call-to-arms for the ideals of open society.
