About this book

Superb overview of the big issues of the age, including much on environmentalism.

From the publisher's announcement:

'A red-hot, passionate manifesto for free trade, responsible environmentalism, a better deal for the world's poor ... He has my vote'
Chris Patten, Guardian

At the start of the new century America and Europe have reached a standoff and Britain is stuck between the two. Can we choose between them? Should we? Or is the West just squabbling while the rest of the world burns?

Political writer and activist Timothy Garton Ash has travelled the globe and undertaken countless interviews - ranging from conversations with Bush, Blair and Schr#der to encounters with farmers in Kansas and soldiers in Aldershot - to challenge the myth that America and Europe can never meet. This radical and visionary book shows why our current predicament actually reveals an opportunity for citizens everywhere to work together, end the divide between the West and the Rest - and create a truly free world.
