Globalization, like many great geopolitical ideologies before it, is now officially dead. Contrary to the hopes of those who supported the global ideal, the years since the end of the Cold War have seen the return of nationalism, often is quite vociferous forms. Instead of surrendering (or sharing, depending on your point of view) sovereignty, governments and citizens are reasserting their national interests. In this groundbreaking, exhilarating book, the distinguished philosopher John Ralston Saul examines where we go from here. His scintillating investigation into the collapse of globalism is essential reading for all who wish to understand the geopolitical chasm we are about to bridge.
"'Like Orwell, Koestler, Marshall McLuhan, Primo Levi and Tim Flannery, [Saul] tells us unsparingly how tremendously we got things wrong, how much magic the Age of Reason cost us... [Saul is] the most wide-ranging mind, and one of the great organising and focusing teachers, we have.' Bob Ellis, Sydney Morning Herald"
