"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."--Jacket

Chris Patten reflects on his experiences as the governor of Hong Kong, why he adopted the stance he did, and how he fought his battles. Why has the Far East more generally prospered so spectacularly over recent decades, and how seriously should its recent crises be taken? What is the possibility of such conditions for prosperity being reproduced elsewhere? What are the connections between political freedom and the rule of law, and economic freedom and advance? What is China's role in the world to be? Patten discusses the answers to these and other questions
