An incisive, optimistic manifesto for a more inclusive globalism.
Hassan Damluji is Deputy Director at the world's largest philanthropy, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, where he leads a global team responsible for policy and advocacy across the Middle East, Pakistan, Japan and Korea. He is also active in politics and education in the UK, where he has founded a school rated "outstanding" by Ofsted. He has been named every year since 2015 as one of the 100 most influential Arabs under 40, by Arabian Business magazine.
Thought provoking and well-written... a good read for people who
care about solving global problems. Damluji puts forth ideas that
can help make global systems more successful. -- Bill Gates
Visionary. . . A must-read for anyone who wants solutions to our most important problems -- Riz Ahmed
This is the book I would have written if I were smart enough -- Richard Curtis
Damluji's fast-paced, highly readable book is an important contribution to the literature on how to make globalization work better. Instead, of just spelling out problems with the world as we find it, he seeks to build a new consensus around a more effective global order. Full of historical examples and insights, this is a book about what to do right now if we are to have a brighter future -- Masood Ahmed, President, Center for Global Development, Washington, D.C.
Damluji has trawled through the history of nations, as well as his own family, in constructing this fresh and highly original perspective on global politics. The result is a coherent manifesto that's provides some much-needed positivity at a time when the global system is under unprecedented strain. This book will revive in many people the belief that there is a path leading from where we stand today to a more cooperative world - if only we are bold enough to take it. -- Erik Berglof, Director of the Institute for Global Affairs, London School of Economics
