About this book

We live at a turning point in human history. Ahead is a century of massive change. Either we learn to manage this change, or we allow it to control us and face devastating consequences. James Martin explains with clarity and precision the nature of the challenges we face, from global warming to famine, religious extremism and technological advance, and then defines the thinking that will provide us with solutions for the future. Far from doom-mongering, his book is an extraordinarily optimistic and empowering argument for transition on a global scale: a ringing call to arms and a pragmatic blueprint for action.
