Summary "The attacks on September 11, 2001, shook the rich West out of its complacency: suddenly, peace seemed to be in peril. Already it had become clear that prosperity was endangered. Campaigns were being mounted against the purported evils of capitalist globalization - inequality, pollution, and financial instability - and America's high-tech stock market boom had turned rapidly to bust. How had it all happened? During the decade following the end of the cold war, prospects had looked so rosy: peace prevailed among the world's great powers, billions of people were joining the world market economy, and great waves of technological change were driving economies forward."--BOOK JACKET
