ABOUT THE BOOK: The world is entering a perfect storm of calamities: a great game for scarce natural resources, financial instability, environmental stress, and failing states. In some respects, it isn’t far off from that medieval landscape of almost a millennium ago. It is a multi-polar, multi-civilizational world in which every empire, city-state, multi-national corporation or mercenary army is out for itself. Esteemed adventurer-scholar Parag Khanna’s How to Run the World is a bold account of our current global chaos and a road-map for creating a truly resilient and stable world.
Some of the early endorsements of the book include:
"This book is a fresh, bold, provocativeundefinedand most importantly realisticundefinedguide to getting us to the next Renaissance." - Greg Mortenson, author of Three Cups of Tea.
“We need to pay attention to Parag’s ideas.” – Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google.
“There’s no book like it.” – John G. Ruggie, Professor at Harvard University.
Both the Daily Beast and Huffington Post have already dubbed the book one of the most anticipated of 2011.
