The World is Flat

 840.00

THE WORLD IS CHANGING. THE FUTURE IS FLAT …

Thomas Friedman‘s international bestseller is the most up-to-date and exciting view yet of today’s new era of globalization. In this further expanded edition, which now also includes two wholly new chapters, he draws on his travels to India, China and the Middle East, and on the explosion of technologies including blogging, online encyclopedias and podcasting, to show how knowledge and resources are connecting all over the planet as never before. This ‘flattening’ of the world, he argues, can be a force for good – for business, the environment and people everywhere.

 

“Truly amazing … an essential read for anyone interested to know where the next lightning-fast passage of travel over the surface of our ever-more flattened earth is going to take us’

A.C. Grayling, Independent on Sunday

 

Enthralling … a terrifically stimulating book’
Warren Bass, Washington Post

 

‘It will make hundreds of thousands of readers understand a little better at least some of the forces in our world’
Martin Wolf, Financial Times

 

‘Perceptive, well researched and cogently argued … leavened by the odd wry aside’ 

Martin Baker. Sunday Telegraph
