In The Ideas That Conquered the World, Michael Mandelbaum describes the uneven spread (over the past two centuries) of peace, democracy, and free markets from the wealthy and powerful countries of the world's core, where they originated, to the weaker and poorer countries of its periphery. And he assesses the prospects for these ideas in the years to come, giving particular attention to the United States, which bears the greatest responsibility for protecting and promoting them, and to Russia, China, and the Middle East, in which they are not well established and where their fate will affect the rest of the world.
Drawing on history, politics, and economics, this incisive book provides a clear and original guide to the main trends of the twenty-first century, from globalization to terrorism, through the perspective of one of our era's most provocative thinkers.
About the Author
New York Times Book Review
"A brilliant book…Mandelbaum develops [his] thesis elegantly, knowledgeably and convincingly."
The Financial Times
"If you are like me and trying to put the events of Sept. 11 in some overall historical context, then I recommend Michael Mandelbaum's new book…written clearly and with a wit rarely seen in such a serious work."
"A thoughtful and powerful telling and analysis of the triumphant and ongoing impact of the ideas of peace, democracy and free markets."
