Globalization is now officially dead. Its collapse has left us with a paradox—a chaotic vacuum. Governments and citizens are unexpectedly reasserting their national interests. The U.S. appears determined to ignore its critics. Europe struggles with racism, terrorism and renewed internal nationalism. Elsewhere, the world looks for answers to African debt, the aids epidemic, and fundamentalism. As well as analyzing Globalism's negative aspects, Saul also examines its successes, such as the astonishing growth in world trade and the rise of India and China. Insightful and prophetic, The Collapse of Globalism is one of the seminal books of our time.
