Product Description

Grand economic theories rarely last more than a few decades and globalization, with its technocratic and technological determinism, and its market idolatry, may have seen its best days. Perhaps it is already a spent force, argues John Ralston Saul--the prize-winning author of The Unconscious Civilization, Voltaire's Bastards , and On Equilibrium , among others--in this groundbreaking new book.

The Collapse of Globalism follows globalization from its promising beginnings in the 1970s through to the increasing deregulation in industry, and into the 1990s, when regional economic collapses and concern for the environment and for the rights of workers led to widespread protest and disillusionment. In the wake of globalism's collapse, nationalism of the best and worst sort, Saul demonstrates, shows signs of making a remarkable, unexpected recovery.

Praise for Voltaire's Bastards:

"Voltaire's Bastard's is a hand-grenade disguised as a book. The pages explode with insight, style, and intellectual rigor...[This book] will leave you challenged, intrigued, and at times troubled."--The Washington Post

John Ralston Saul's books include The Unconscious Civilization, Voltaire's Bastards, and On Equilibrium. He was recently chosen by the Chilean government as one of one hundred medal winners in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Pablo Neruda's birth. He lives in Toronto, Ontario.
