Read full description of the books Common Wealth:The 20th century saw the end of European dominance of the global scene. According to Jeffrey Sachs, the 21st century will bring changes even more sweeping. The author of The End of Poverty predicts more than the eclipse of the American Empire; he foresees a drastic rebalancing of economics and politics among regions of the world. The time, he says, is quickly approaching when the world will be too crowded and dangerous for "Great Games" strategies in the Middle East or elsewhere. Eventually, nations great and small will be forced to confront the defining challenge of the new century: the reality that humanity shares a common fate and that any clash of civilizations would be our last. A major book by a bestselling author.
