Review:

"At the end of the 20th century, two coiled forces, religion and markets, sprung onto the world stage. From China's reforms to Margaret Thatcher's rise to Ayatollah Khomeini's revolution, they all began in 1979 and have been shaping international life ever since. Christian Caryl tells the story of that pivotal year--and its consequences--with intelligence, grace and lucidity."
Anne Applebaum, author of "Iron Curtain: The Crushing of Eastern Europe, 1944-1956" --Fareed Zakaria

Book Description:

"A timely new book... Anyone who wants to understand how this new world came into being needs to read Mr. Caryl's excellent book."-The Economist
