In the same way that Machiavelli, and Sun Tzu before him, exploded all existing ideas about strategy, Power, Purpose and Principle cuts across politics, economics and business to set out a new and compelling way of looking at the world. It poses fundamental questions: How many more wars before we learn to establish peace? How many more feudal systems of enterprise before we learn to build prosperity? How many more inequitable regimes before we learn to honour freedoms?...and answers them Events are moving faster than we are moving in developing our ability to deal with them. With the passing of time, the gap is widening between the challenge and our capability. We are becoming less and less fit to close the gap. We find ourselves today more connected, more knowledgeable, more prosperous, more resourceful and therefore more powerful than ever before. With all our power, we have circled back to the need to focus our energies on survival and security. The quality of our strategies will determine the outcome.
