About this product
- DescriptionAssumptions and institutions that we have taken for granted for fifty years are proving inadequate for the world w emerging. Moreover, mo-casual explanations of rapid global change do t work. Religious as well as ecomic dynamics, cultural as well as political forces, environmental as well as military constraints, are frequently working at cross-purposes in shaping a globe we cant yet fathom. The essays in this volume reach beyond the mere description of phemena to explore deeper currents of institutional breakdown and competing cultural drives that are radically reshaping our world. Covering topics ranging from the New Silk Road to changes in school governance around the world, the authors offer a critical, historically-informed assessment of the diverse dynamics that are undermining or nullifying current paradigms of thought and action. Drawing on their diverse backgrounds in ecomics, international affairs, ethics, history, education, and religion, the authors share the conviction that long-standing assumptions about a state-centered, secular-tending, ecomically converging world are in large measure mistaken. A paradigm shift is required if we are to understand and constructively shape the twenty-first century world.
