"What Next? tackles the big questions about our global condition and our collective future with a verve and authority no other current commentator or political figure, on either side of the Atlantic or the Channel, could match. Energy, food, water, international crime, weapons proliferation, drug trafficking, climate change, epidemic disease, migration - the challenges facing our world are themselves proliferating rapidly. On each of them, Chris Patten digests vast amounts of information from many different sources and analyses them for the reader using his experience at the highest levels of international politics. Very little in the world, he says, has turned out as we might have expected twenty years ago. But for reasons he explains, he remains an optimist in the face of this formidable agenda."--BOOK JACKET
