At the start of the twenty-first century, the challenges the world faces seem bewilderingly complex. Gone are the old assurances about the triumph of the West and the free market. But what will take their place?
Here Chris Patten draws on his many years at the highest levels of international affairs to tackle the big questions of our time - from financial turmoil to the energy crisis, immigration to the ascendancy of the East - offering a wise, witty and surprisingly optimistic account of the world today.
