    Editorial ReviewWith his inimitable combination of dry wit and analytical clarity, Gideon Rachman gives us the latest thirty years of world history in three distinct phases, from the genesis of the Eighties, through the hubris of the Nineties and early Noughties, to the nemesis of the Great Recession. What makes this book so readable is the author's keen eye for the microcosm: the individual who personifies a big theme. No one else can make a solemn subject like nuclear non-proliferation live and breath the way Rachman can.' Niall Fergusson 'Zero-Sum World addresses the most important geopolitical issue today: whether the US and Europe will be able to lead the world to a more prosperous and benign future through economic and political cooperation or whether they will lose confidence and fall victim to the fashionable myths of Asian ascendancy, counter-globalization, and the attempt to revive the market-defying State. Though Rachman writes with dispassionate clarity, his message is fundamentally a moral one. This is a superb book.' Philip Bobbitt 'Rachman is a brilliant commentator with a deep sense of history. Nobody has better defined the fault-lines in our globalised world.' Steven Sakur --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
