We are co-creators of the world we live in, and must take responsibility for doing what we can to make it worthy of ourselves and a fitting legacy for generations still to come. At a time when values of co-operation and community seem ever more at risk, Future Positive provides an assessment of the prospects for a new international order - a direct counter-blast to the doom-mongering views of writers and politicians whose voices dominate the debate. For those in search of politics and economics that are more humane and less destructive, this book will be both an inspiration and an essential, practical resource." ;
