About this item

We live in an age of revolutionary change brought about by globalization and digitalization that profoundly alters the way we live and work. It offers us new possibilities and opportunities, knowledge grows exponentially, medicine and science leap forward, progress is fast. Yet it has its price. There is a dark side to globalization. Our cyber integrity is under attack; the financial markets may enter another crisis; global warming is threatening our future; and conflict and climate change combine with demographic pressures and the lack of economic perspectives in large parts of the Global South to provoke migration at a massive scale. Conflict, terrorism, organized crime, and fundamentalism converge as a threat. Our institutions have difficulty coping; mankind is hard pressed to adapt. Politics become more volatile. Stability is a word from the past. In his new book Theodor H. Winkler presents a fascinating review of the trends that mark the age of globalization we live in, and of the political questions raised by it. He analyzes what are the policy trends in, and implications of, an unruly world, and he makes concrete proposals what should be done to improve our ability to cope with the multiple challenges posed. This is an important contribution to the key political debates of our time. It is a must for diplomats, politicians, journalists, representatives of non-governmental institutions, academics, and anybody interested in politics.
