The financial crisis brought the world to the brink. But now bankers' bonuses are back, house prices are rising again and politicians promise recovery. Is this really sustainable - or do we need to change course?

In this incisive assessment of the post-crisis world, Philippe Legrain looks at what went wrong, and how the world's leaders and financial institutions can learn from their disastrous mistakes. Reporting first-hand from across the globe he sets out the huge dangers ahead - and the opportunities to craft a fairer, safer, richer and greener world.

Wide-ranging, brilliant and impassioned, AFTERSHOCK it is at once a warning from history and a compelling call to arms for the future.

Review:

'Legrain has that rarest of qualities in these troubled times: he's an optimist. With meticulous reporting and interviews from Iceland to Australia, he sets out a blueprint for a new economic world order' --John Arlidge, Sunday Times

'Legrain has a gift for combining big numbers that offer a sense of the scale of the global build-up . . . This makes his book a particularly good survey of what made up the unpleasant cocktail which the world has yet to digest' --The Economist

'Legrain passes with flying colours . . . This is a book that is big in its breadth of content and vision and refreshingly hopeful about the possibility of harnessing globalisation to the betterment of all mankind' -- Irish Times, Book of the Day

'Legrain provides a timely and amusing account of how we were all effectively mugged by sharp-suited bankers with the connivance of politicians leading up to the virtual meltdown of the global financial system in 2008' --Herald

Book Description:
