Description

Globalization, like many great ideologies before it, is dead. Despite the almost religious certainty with which it was conceived, nation states have not become extinct, international trade has not created real wealth that has spread across society and many dictatorships have not changed into democracies. In this groundbreaking book, the distinguished philosopher John Ralston Saul examines where we go from here. As the hope of global prosperity fades and the problems of immigration, terrorism and the collapsing economy cause the world's nations to rethink their relationships, Saul's exhilarating investigation into the collapse of globalism is essential - and timely.

Review quote

"'Elegantly written and deeply important... Saul has provided a vital analysis of why globalization was never inevitable and always destined to fail, and what will come in its place.' Sebastian Bosher, Ecologist 'Informative, engaging and, above all, bitingly critical... An eminently readable book.' Martin Jacques, Guardian 'Saul brings a great breadth of literary and cultural knowledge to his task... and there is much evidence to support Saul's contention that things are going badly wrong with our planet.' Paul Kennedy, Sunday Times"
